Music at OTHS

About the Concert Band

The OTHS Concert Band is an enthusiastic group of students who meet for rehearsal every Wednesday after school. All students who are in the Music Program for a music class, also earn a credit for Band. Students are highly encouraged to join this fun group of 60+ musicians!  

About the Jazz Band

The OTHS Jazz Band is an exceptional group of Grade 10-12 students who meet twice a week - Tuesday at 7:00 am & Thursday after school - in the Music Room.  The Jazz Band is by invitation only.  Instruments include saxophones, trumpets and trombones, guitar, bass, drums, and piano. Occasionally, we also ask talented vocalists to participate!    In 2019, the OTHS Jazz Band earned GOLD at Musicfest Regionals, and earned SILVER at Musicfest Nationals!  

About the Band Council

The Band Council is made up of interested students representing all grades who participate in either Concert Band or Jazz Band. They meet every Tuesday at lunch in the Music Room to plan and organize fundraisers and events for the Music Department. The students in Music Council are creative, energetic, dedicated to OTHS Music. Join us, we'd love to have you and hear your ideas!
