With a commitment to excellence, we strive to afford students the best musical experience available. Band students are provided opportunities to excel individually and as a ensemble. In addition to band competitions and festivals, students may participate in region and all-state auditions, the Lander University Wind Ensemble, university band clinics and numerous local community and state events.
Our program consists of a Wind Ensemble, The 706 Jazz Band, Take 5 Brass Quintet, Woodwind Ensemble and The Viking Vanguard Marching Band, which includes the Color Guard and Front Ensemble.
The band program at Emerald High School is fed by the band program at Westview Middle School.Looking ahead, the Emerald High School Band Program continues to strive toward a very simple goal: to provide its students with the very best musical opportunities. We encourage your support of this and all of our public school music programs.Emerald High School150 Bypass 225Greenwood, SC 29646
