Concert Bands

Concert band is the core of the Edmond North Band Program and the foundation upon which all other band activities are built. Students prepare wind band literature of the highest caliber in one of three concert bands each year from November to May. The concert ensembles perform numerous concerts and compete in OSSAA and festival events throughout Oklahoma and the United States each concert season.

Solos and ensembles are mainly student-led, with coaching from directors and private instructors. Most woodwind and brass solos require a piano accompaniment, and the students are responsible for making their own arrangements with an accompanist. Participation in the OSSAA Solo and Ensemble Contest is a requirement for lettering in band.
