About Our Program

The Frederick High School Bands Program currently has a symphonic band which has students split among a wind ensemble,  marching band, and small ensembles.  We also offer jazz band, a percussion ensemble, mariachi ensemble, a non marching concert band, and a color guard class.  There are over 120 students involved in the FHS Bands Program.

The Frederick Bands perform annually at the UNC Jazz Festival, St. Vrain Band Night, the Friendship cup, four local parades, halftime performances, and four formal concerts.  They have performed at Walt Disney World and Branson, Missouri.
