The Wind Ensemble, which performs grade VI music, has received Superior ratings 9 of the past 10 years. The Symphonic and Concert Bands perform grade V and IV respectively and provide opportunities for students to bond and perform. The Marching Knights is a 120-member Ensemble that has earned multiple awards and accolades from judges and audiences alike. The acclaimed Jazz Band performs music from a wide range of style periods and composers. Band students are provided with many opportunities for individual growth. They have averaged over 30 students in All-District Band for a decade, qualified 10 students annually for All-Virginia Band auditions, and placed from 1 to 4 students in All-State Band for the past 10 years.
