Wilmington Middle School Bands
The Instrumental Music Program in the Wilmington City Schools consists of 350 students in grades 6-12. Students begin in the Band Program on an instrument in homogeneous classes during their 6th grade year. After one year the students have the opportunity to continue their band experience throughout middle school in the 7th and 8th Grade Bands. Each of these bands perform regular concerts throughout the year as well as giving performances at school assemblies. The 8th Grade Band has a long tradition of performing in adjudicated events throughout Southwest Ohio. Both the 7th and 8th Grade Band students participate in Solo and Ensemble adjudicated performances every year.
