Concert Band

The Owensboro Catholic High School Concert Band plays a variety of music from serious concert band literature to lighter Christmas and “Pops” favorites. The band performs a Christmas and Spring Concert as well as participates in then KMEA 2nd District Concert Band Festival. The importance of a great concert band program cannot be understated. Concert Band is where music learning and musicianship can really flourish.

Jazz Band

The OCHS Jazz Band is a second semester ensemble that meets every Wednesday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Any band student who is interested is invited to participate. The goal of this ensemble is to read and perform all types of jazz music and styles. Our jazz band at OCHS is not your typical standard jazz band…you may see some flutes, clarinets, and mellophones in our jazz band along with the standard saxophones, brass, and rhythm sections. We feel this is an educational experience that ALL students can benefit from.

Pep Band

The OCHS Band Program provides a pep band for the OCHS Football games and the Girls and Boys Basketball teams. This ensemble plays upbeat cheer songs as well as favorite pep band classics.

Solo and Ensemble

Every year during the second semester, band students from grade 7-12 can participate in Solo and Ensemble. Students perform every year at the 2nd District Solo and Ensemble Festival for judge’s comments and a rating. Students receiving a Distinguished Rating will receive a medal as well. Participation in Solo and Ensemble is strongly encouraged. It gives the students a chance to play a variety of repertoire in a chamber-like setting. High School Level 1 students are required to participate in Solo and Ensemble.
