WIND SYMPHONY

 

The Langley Wind Symphony is recognized as one of the premier concert ensembles in Virginia.  In March 2017, the Wind Symphony performed at the prestigious Music For All National Concert Band Festival (Indianapolis, IN) and in November 2017 performed by invitation at the Virginia Music Educators Association Conference, for the first time in school history.

The Wind Symphony has earned "Superior" ratings from every judge at the band's performance assessment each year under Mr. Martin's direction.  The Wind Symphony also has commissioned and performed new pieces of music, including the world premiere of Scott Lindroth's piece, Eternity's Sunrise.

WIND ENSEMBLE

 

The Wind Ensemble is the middle of the three concert ensembles at Langley High School. The Wind Ensemble's repertoire and grade of music has become increasingly difficult, as the depth of the musicianship of the Langley band program has grown.

SYMPHONIC BAND

 

The tremendous growth of the Langley band program in recent years led to the creation of a third concert ensemble, the Symphonic Band. The Symphonic Band, which is home to many freshman and sophomore musicians, has grown in numbers as well as in musicianship each year.

JAZZ BAND

 

The Jazz Band rehearses during Langley's "8th period" (after school), and performs at concerts throughout the year, giving musicians an opportunity to perform jazz classics and further hone their improv skills.

PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE

 

The Langley Percussion ensemble performs pieces written or arranged specifically for a wide variety of percussive instruments. The Percussion Ensemble performed in March 2017 by invitation at the prestigious Music for All Festival  (Indianapolis, IN) and in November 2017 at the Virginia Music Educators Annual Conference.

FLUTE CHOIR

 

New in 2018, the Flute Choir offers Langley flautists an opportunity to focus on performing small ensemble pieces written specifically for the flute. The student-led group's debut performance occurred in April 2019 at the District Solo & Ensemble Festival.

In November 2019, the Flute Choir performed at the Virginia Music Educators Association annual conference in Hot Springs, VA. The flute choir was chosen through competitive auditions of small ensembles across Virginia.
