The Jazz Ensemble is a premiere ensemble at FHS. The band consistently performs at a high level at local functions and out of town festivals. Our primary function is to serve as the Club Cougar Orchestra in January!
The Foothill Orchestra is taught by our outstanding music educator, FHS 2014 graduate Ernesto Aguirre! This is a course for violin, viola, cello and upright bass. This class is tailored for both beginners and experienced players. We perform at Winter Concert, Spring Concert, Graduation…as well as local concerts here at Foothill and in our local community.
SYMPHONIC BAND (Band II)
The hardest working band around! Active in parades, field shows and concert band repertoire, this band consistently performs at an elite level.
CONCERT BAND (Band I)
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 an introductory course into our high school instrumental music program.
PIANO and GUITAR
In FHS Room 204 (the FHS Choir Room), we offer a year-long acoustic guitar course. And in FHS Room 206, we have a beautiful Piano Lab, and we offer a year of piano instruction. No experience is required for either course. We learn to read notes, understand basic music theory, and learn to play the guitar…or the piano! 🙂
