About Our Program

The Great Bridge High School Band program involves nearly 200 students in grades nine through twelve. Our high school band program includes three curricular bands: Ninth Grade Band, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble. All band members in grades nine through twelve are offered the opportunity to participate in the award winning Great Bridge Marching Wildcats. High School students are offered opportunities to play in the jazz ensemble, indoor color guard and various chamber ensembles.

Each year, a large number of our students participate in district band auditions. For many years the high school district has been comprised of a large number of Great Bridge students. Seventeen times our band program has received the Virginia Honor Band award for earning a superior rating at the Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association Marching Band Performance Assessment and our highest level band receiving a superior at the District Concert Band Performance Assessment.
