Concert Band  is the "beginning band," a non-auditioned ensemble that is open to any WCO student, regardless of musical experience. All freshman band students are placed in Concert Band by default, but many Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will also be participating in the ensemble. The goal of Concert Band is to prepare students for future involvement in Symphonic Band. At football games, basketball games, and parade events the Concert Band combines with the Symphonic Band & Percussion ensemble to form The Royal Pep Band.
