ENSEMBLES


SCREAMING EAGLE REGIMENT

The Screaming Eagle Regiment is the marching band component of our program. All of our instrumental music students are required to participate in the Screaming Eagle Regiment as it is the ensemble school and program culture is introduced and developed. It is our most visible ensemble and acts as a major ambassador for our school across the state and around our community. With around 120 students, this ensemble participates at football games, concerts, parades, independent marching competitions, the Florida Bandmasters Association District Marching Music Performance Assessment, and the Florida Marching Band Coalition’s Regional Competitions.

The Wind Symphony is our premier concert band here at South Lake High School. This ensemble is made up of 50-60 students, mainly in grades 11 and 12, who excel at their instrument, as determined through audition. The Symphonic Band is our second concert band here at South Lake High School. This ensemble is made up of 50-60 students, mainly in grades 9 and 10, who usually have previous training, but it is not necessary. Both ensembles participate in several concerts per year in our 700-seat performing arts center. These groups also perform at FBA events throughout the year.

All these ensembles participate in several concerts per year on our campus and around our community. These groups also perform at FBA events throughout the year.


COBALT INDOOR GUARD

Our Indoor Guard Ensemble is made up of students in grades 9 through 12 who participate as guard members with our Screaming Eagle Regiment. They continue into the Winter and Spring months as a separate ensemble to develop a show to be performed in gymnasiums. They also participate in FFCC, WGI, and FBA events throughout the year.


CHAMBER ENSEMBLES

WOODWIND CHOIR, BRASS CHOIR, AND PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE

Our program also has several chamber ensembles including: an 18-piece Woodwind Choir, an 18-piece Brass Choir, and two 12-piece Concert Percussion Ensembles. These ensembles, while adding more individualized opportunities for our students, also add to our concerts each year. These ensembles also participate at the FBA events throughout the year. These ensembles are voluntary and truly help to build individual accountability and musicianship, which aids the overall development of our amazing band program.
