The Norwayne High School "Bobcat Pride"

marching band season. We are pleased to announce the debut of our 2009
"Festival Show," a show that will be performed at the first two home games,
several away games, and band festivals. In order to appeal more to our
home crowd (our most important audience), we are pleased to
announce that there will be a different combination of selections performed
for EACH HOME GAME, some even with their own drill! Grab your
concessions in the 3rd quarter and stay to watch the "Bobcat Pride" at
halftime this season- it's going to be a great ride!

Concert Band at Norwayne High School
The Concert Band at Norwayne High School is the
major ensemble that meets during the winter and spring and is reflected in
the grade for the second, third and fourth grading periods. The
concert band is responsible for a large amount of the growth, musical
caliber and educational purpose of the Norwayne High School Band Program.
The ensemble performs a Holiday and Spring Concert as well as
performing at OMEA District Contest, the North Central Local Schools Fine
Arts Festival, graduation, and possibly some other concerts and/or festivals
that occur throughout the year. Most of the rehearsing for this
ensemble is done within the boundaries of the school day. Some evening
rehearsals are scheduled throughout the year in order to accommodate for
guest conductors and clinicians as well as career center students who choose
to participate in band.
About the Jazz Ensemble at Norwayne High School
The Jazz Ensemble at Norwayne High School is open to an
audition for the positions of 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 saxophones, 2 bass
guitars, 2 acoustic/electric guitars, 2 pianos and 2 percussion. The
ensemble is “extra-curricular;” that is, it is a volunteer group that meets
after school and is not part of the grade. The jazz ensemble is formed
on the premise that a decent commitment is made with a balanced
instrumentation. The jazz ensemble provides musicians with the chance
to experiment and develop techniques with several forms of music, including
swing, be-bop, Latin, rock, fusion, and funk. Guitar and bass players
must be able to read music, not just tablature. The jazz
ensemble performs with the concert band and concert choir on concerts
scheduled throughout the school year.
