Lakeland Symphonic Band
The Symphonic Band is an intermediate performance ensemble open to LHS students at any musical skill level. This band is dedicated to building musical repertoire, enhancing instrumental music skills, and learning the fundamentals of professional concert band performance. The Symphonic Band performs at school concerts and local music performance assessments.
The Lakeland High School Band is made up of several ensembles that collectively form the band program as a whole. The Florida School Music Association forbids any student with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 from performing in any type of Music Performance Assessment, including marching, concert, and solo & ensemble festivals. All students are therefore expected to successfully maintain this minimum GPA in order to be productive members of the band program.
All band classes and activities at Lakeland High School are governed by the Polk County Fine Arts curriculum, and also by the Sunshine State Standards for secondary music classes.
