Wind Bands

The WIND BANDS also known as the Concert Band, Symphonic Band 1, Symphonic Band 2, and Wind Symphony are the core of the North Paulding High School Band Program. The Wind Bands are open to students in grades 9-12. Placement in these bands is determined by audition and director recommendation.

(AUDITIONS ARE HELD PRIOR TO STUDENT REGISTRATION)

2017-2018 Concert Ensemble Placement Rosters:

Congratulations to all students who auditioned for the North Paulding High School concert program!  We appreciate your hard work and preparation throughout the audition process to help propel us into what will undoubtedly be another amazing year at North.  We will once again be having four concert ensembles  that will meet during the school day.  Please be reminded that in order to perform with the North Paulding High School band at any point in the year, you must be registered for the correct ensemble for the entire school year.  We will post chair placements before the end of the year for those students wishing to see how the rankings break down.
