The band program at Northpoint Christian School is one of the fastest growing segments of the school. The marching band performs at football games, home basketball games, and in area parades.
The percussion ensemble is a select group of band students that rehearses and performs throughout the year. The annual percussion ensemble concert held in the spring is the highlight of the year.
The band, as well as the percussion ensemble and color guard participate in local, state, and regional competitions and receives consistent high ratings.
Training band is offered for students in high school who desire to learn to play an instrument. The 6th and 7th grade bands have a large number of students who are learning and perfecting an instrument and are preparing for their participation in the high school band.
FALL, 2016 UPDATE:
Starting in June, members of the Marching Band start practicing for their 2016 season. They begin in sections, working on fundamentals and all the meticulous parts and visual demands needed to perform at a high level. After a month of sectional work, the entire ensemble comes together the last 2 weeks of July for Band Camp to start putting all their parts together. They spend 8 hours a day for those 2 weeks working outside to learn and perfect their show. Before school has even started the Marching Band has already put in over 100 hours of practice. After extensive practice, the marching band traveled to their first competition in Arlington, TN, where they won their division and many other first place caption awards. Over the course of the season they would also travel to Eads and South Gibson, TN where they competed against some of the best Division 1 Bands in the entire Mid-south. They came out on top at these 2 competitions, winning their division and several other first place caption awards. They ended their 2016 season in Memphis, TN performing in the Liberty Bowl Stadium where they won their Class, earning them the Bandmaster’s Championship Banner, and also winning their division, making them undefeated for the season. This is a huge accomplishment and we are very proud of their hard work and dedication to excellence. We wish the band continued success as they now start preparing for the upcoming Percussion Ensemble Season.
