Instrumental Music 


The Tesoro Instrumental Music Program continues to be recognized locally and nationally for its consistent level of excellence. In 2015 our program was recognized as a Grammy Foundation Signature school designating it as one of the five best programs in the nation. 

Our Concert Band, Jazz Band, String Ensemble, and Sinfonia Orchestra consistently earn unanimous superior ratings at district and regional festivals. Our Wind Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, and Symphony Orchestra have enjoyed multiple successful festival performances at Carnegie Hall in New York, Chicago's Symphony Center, and Renee and Henry Segerstrom Hall, and have performed in England, Austria, and Switzerland.

Our Marching Band, Colorguard, and Drumline have all earned top awards at festivals, including circuit championships for Drumline and Colorguard. The Titan Regiment placed 2nd in SCSBOA 4A Division in 2022 earning the silver medal.

Our Musical Theater Pit Orchestra earns Cappie and Macy nominations regularly and has won the Best Orchestra Cappie award four times in the last five years. 

The Tesoro Instrumental Music Program has something to offer students of all levels of experience and interests. 

We welcome all students and are thrilled to provide both musical and life-enriching opportunities in all we do.
