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.

Wind Symphony / Symphonic Band

The 50-piece Wind Symphony is our premier concert band here at South Lake High School. This ensemble is made up of students, mainly in grades 11 and 12, who excel at their instrument, as determined through audition. The 50-piece Symphonic Band is our second concert band here at South Lake High School. This ensemble is made up of 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 the Florida Bandmasters Association District Concert Music Performance Assessment, as well as the Florida Bandmasters Association State Concert Music Performance Assessment. We also perform as a mass band on an end-of-year excursion with these groups.


Jazz

Studio Jazz Ensemble / Jazz Lab Band / Jazz Combos

The 25-piece Studio Jazz Ensemble is our premier jazz band here at South Lake High School. This ensemble is made up of students, mainly in grades 11 and 12, who excel at their instrument, as determined through audition. The 25-piece Jazz Lab Band is our second jazz band here at South Lake High School. This ensemble is made up of students, mainly in grades 9 and 10, and is open to all students interested in performing instrumental jazz music. We also have multiple 6-piece or 7-piece Jazz Combos each year, which are made up of selected students from our jazz program. We encourage all our jazz students to develop their soloing ability through participation in Jazz Combos. All these ensembles participate in several concerts per year on our campus. These groups also perform at the Florida Bandmasters Association District Jazz Music Performance Assessment, as well as the Florida Bandmasters Association State Jazz Music Performance Assessment. We also travel to Golden Triangle Jazz Festival and perform with our groups.


Guard

Indoor Guard Ensemble

Our Cobalt 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 participate in the Florida Federation of Color Guards Circuit Regional Competitions & Championships, Winter Guard International events, the Florida Bandmasters Association District Auxiliary Performance Assessment, and the Florida Bandmasters Association State Auxiliary Performance Assessment.


PercEns

Chamber Ensembles

Our program also has several chamber ensembles including: a Woodwind Choir, a Brass Choir, a Brass Quintet, and two 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 Florida Bandmasters Association District Solo & Ensemble Music Performance Assessment, and the Florida Bandmasters Association State Solo & Ensemble Music Performance Assessment. These ensembles are voluntary and truly help to build individual accountability and musicianship, which aids the overall development of our amazing band program.
