Concert Ensembles

The 2013 Hempfield High School Symphonic Band in front of Lake Erie following their performance at the PMEA All-State Convention!


The center of the Hempfield High School band program, the "Black Knight" Concert Ensembles are comprised of students in grades 9-12 and meet year-round during the school day (every other day for 78 minutes).

The Concert Band is comprised of 9th grade students and maintains a strong focus on building individual and ensemble skills.
The Symphonic Band is comprised of 10th-12th grade students and seeks to develop advanced levels of musicianship.

In addition to performing at all Hempfield High School Band Concerts, the Concert Bands also enjoy performance opportunities at band festivals and adjudications around the area, giving students the opportunity to perform for a variety of audiences and receive feedback to encourage further growth.
