The M-A Bands & Orchestra covers the following groups: Jazz Band I, Jazz Band II, Jazz Band III, 3 Advanced Jazz Band Combos, Concert Band, Orchestra, M-A Football's Pep Band and M-A Drama's Pit Orchestra. Band groups perform at nearly all school-wide events, they perform for the local community at neighborhood events and they compete across the country, at national events—frequently bring high accolades and recognition to Menlo Atherton High School. In total, there are now over 150 students who participate in one way or another and there are over 50 performing events during the school year, giving students a much richer and more rewarding experience as musicians, because of the many opportunities that they have to perform.
It is not hard to believe that accomplishing all of this takes a lot of planning, coordination, hard work and even additional financial support . . . !
. . . that's why the M-A Band Boosters exist—to help coordinate and provide the extra support that is needed!
Below, view some highlights of the many impressive accomplishments of the M-A Bands & Orchestra. Additionally, we are pleased to add several new archival pages, to showcase more band accomplishments: see Photos, Videos and History. After viewing all that we are doing, will you come lend some support? Thanks!
