San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara
has an exciting group of award-winning bands,
with a year-long program of activities.
Jazz, Wind, Percussion and Pit Orchestra Ensembles will rehearse and perform throughout the spring term at San Marcos High.
During the Spring semester, student musicians will be studying and rehearsing with specific ensembles. Be sure to check our calendar for performance dates.
The Wind Ensemble, or Concert Band class, is open to all students regardless of ability. All other ensembles accept students by audition. Contact Mr. Kiyoi, Instrumental Music Director, if you have any questions about auditions or the music programs offered in the spring term at San Marcos.
If you will be an incoming freshman student this year, or will be new to the San Marcos Instrumental Music program in fall 2019, we encourage you to enroll in the fall semester Marching Band class or audition for the Jazz Ensemble.
Marching Band rehearsals begin in June for the fall show. The practice schedule will be sent to current 8th graders through their junior high music teacher in May, or you can reach out to Mr. Kiyoi directly.
Auditions for the Jazz Ensemble are held at the beginning of the fall term, with twice weekly after-school rehearsals commencing shortly thereafter.
To help pay for the instructional support of our many ensembles, we hold several key fundraisers. Our largest event, a Mattress Sale, takes place on Saturday, February 23 at San Marcos. If you are in the market for a new mattress, please consider checking out our sale! Click here for details.
Thanks for your continued support of the San Marcos High Royals Bands!
