An Award Winning Band Program
Where else do students get the chance to perform on stage at Carnegie Hall? Work with world-famous jazz musicians at Lincoln Center? March on the turf at MetLife Stadium? Parade down Main Street U.S.A. at Walt Disney World? Audition for elite local, regional, state and national ensembles? And much more? West Essex Band, that’s where!
West Essex High School provides an award winning and comprehensive selection of musical activities that foster a well-rounded music education while developing important humanistic values such as creativity, work ethic, dedication, motivation and respect to name a few.
While the concert band and symphonic winds are the core of our program, West Essex High School offers many opportunities to participate in instrumental music. During the year, students may participate in extracurricular ensembles such as marching band, jazz band, indoor percussion, winter guard, and other small ensemble groups.
This section describes each of the following ensembles and how the West Essex Band Boosters provides support.
