The Jefferson Concert Band, directed by Mr. Barker is open to all qualified band students at Jefferson. The skill level of the players in this band has a minimum performance expectation. The Director of Bands will listen to interested students entering the Lafayette School Corporation and grant permission for enrollment in the band. The band stresses the basic skills of tone production, technical development, intonation, and rhythmic reading plus attention to balance, blend, interpretive markings, and response to conducting nuance. The Concert band presents a variety of concerts each year and enters the ISSMA District Contest.
