2011-2012 Concert Ensembles

The Chantilly High School Band currently has 2 concert ensembles: The Symphonic Winds and the Concert Band.  All bands prepare several concerts throughout the concert season, including the Virginia Band and Orchestra Director’s Association Concert Band Festival Assessment, and send students to audition for All-District Band. Several students each year advance to All-Virginia Band and Orchestra auditions, and eventually become part of one of the Virginia All-State Bands or Orchestras, which perform during the All-Virginia Band and Orchestra weekend in April.
