ORHS Bands.

Marching Band.
The full band performs at all ORHS football games, selected marching contests, and the Oak Ridge Christmas Parade. All students enrolled in the Band class and guard members enrolled in the Auxillary class, perform with this group.

Our 2017 show is entitled Danza del Toro.

Symphonic Band.
This select group performs music at the grade 5 and 6 level. Placement in this band is by audition only. This band concentrates on performance techniques, and showcases several senior students in solo performances. Recent festival pieces performed by this band include "First Suite in Eb for Concert Band", "Tulsa", "Punchinello", "Lord of the Rings", and "Armenian Dances, Part 1".

Concert Band.
This band performs music at the grade 4 and 5 level. Placement is dependent on yearly seating auditions. This band stresses developmental and scale studies, as well as musical performance. Recent festival performances include "Canticle of the Creatures", "Metroplex", "Havendance", "Exultate", "Martyr's Mirror", and "Symphonic Psalm".

The JazzKats rehearse after school later in the Marching Season. The group performs at all concerts, as well as other select venues in town. JazzKats is a volunteer group under the direction of Mr. Mike Spirko. It is open to all members of the ORHS Band as well as other students in the school who may be interested.

Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion ensembles are featured at concerts throughout the year. The band also divides into smaller "Pep Bands" to provide music at other events.
