Aeternum Glorifico / Quintescent Journey


In our ongoing effort to continue supporting the creation of quality music for school instrumental ensembles, the IHS Wind Ensemble commissioned a new work for concert band by composer Lisa Galvin.  This energetic work will be premiered by the Wind Ensemble on May 9, 2018 at the IHS Spring Concert.  While still in draft form, we received word that the work will be published in 2018 by C.L. Barnhouse.  See our "High School" page for additional information regarding this process.    

Chamber & Large Group Adjudications


Each year, the Independence High School Band Program participates in a variety of activities and events structured to bolster musical growth and improve student performance.  In 2018, members of the IHS Band program will participate in the Ohio Music Education Association's Solo and Ensemble Adjudication on Saturday, January 20, at Padua Franciscan High School and Large Group Adjudication at Westlake High School on March 2/3.  Instead of a competition where participants are ranked and rated in comparison with one another, an adjudication is an opportunity to be evaluated against a standard and receive comments and a rating based upon overall performance and their conformance to a preset standard.
