Our Jazz Ensemble A (The Club Cougar Orchestra) is an elite ensemble at FHS. The band consistently performs at a high level at local functions and out of town festivals. As our roster is finalized, the names of these talented young men and women will be online!


The Jazz Cats are one of two jazz bands here at Foothill High School. This band shares billing with our Club Cougar Orchestra at The Swingin’ Spaghetti Feed, the Sac State Jazz Festival, the Santa Cruz Jazz Festival, the Reno Jazz Festival, our Winter and Spring Concerts, the Jazz Day in the Mt. Shasta Mall and Kool April Nites! This band always plays with energy and has become a fan-favorite in our community.


The hardest working band around! Active in parades, field shows and concert band repertoire, this band consistently performs at an elite level.


Concert Band is offered to all incoming freshmen students. We play all the home football games, participate in the Redding Lighted Christmas Parade, Winter/Spring Concert and graduation. It is designed to be a relatively stress-free introductory course into our program, and the larger world of our high school instrumental music program.


Course available to all violins, violas, cellos and bassists
