The Ranch View Band and Orchestra performs several times throughout the year, including winter program performances, a combined band/orchestra concert, and the fifth grade band festival. Throughout the year students are working on performance music as well as achievement lines and scale requirements. Additional performances are occasionally scheduled for special events.
Lessons occur once a week on a rotating schedule, and full band/orchestra rehearses once a week also. Information about the district summer band/orchestra program is available through the music link on the District 203 website.
Honor Band and Honor Strings are audition only groups. Selected 5th graders from all 14 elementary schools will be invited to audition. Honor Band and Honor Strings rehearse at a Junior High once a week from the middle of October through mid February. Both groups perform together in February at either Naperville North or Naperville Central High School
