Wind Ensemble, Symphonic, and Concert Bands
The Rampart Wind Ensemble, Symphonic, and Concert Bands are the core of our instrumental music program. Each band rehearses year round and has their own schedule of performances and festivals. Student’s wishing to join the symphonic band and wind ensemble are required to audition and private lessons are highly recommended. Rehearsals are held during school with extra sectionals, rehearsals, and clinics being scheduled from time to time outside of the school day. Attendance at extra sectionals, rehearsals, and clinics is mandatory. Attendance for concerts and festivals are also mandatory.

Advanced Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble
The Rampart Jazz program consists of two big bands, as well as student combos. Both big bands (Jazz Ensemble 1 and Advanced Jazz Ensemble) are only open to students through audition. Student combos are made up and directed by students within the two bands, and rehearse outside of the school day. The Rampart Jazz program also performs at several festivals and concerts throughout the year and has been a featured performer at the “Dazzle” Jazz club in the Denver Metro Area.
