Making a joyful noise...

unto the Lord.

Providence Band exists to bring Glory to the Lord through musical instruments. The biblical theme  “Play skillfully,” (Psalm 33:3) is woven throughout the program.   Providence offers band classes to fit all levels of ability and experience.  Students will learn the basics of playing their instrument and will eventually become proficient at performing a wide variety of music including both traditional Concert Band, Marching Band, and Jazz Band music. Students have the opportunity to be involved in elementary, middle and finally, high school classes.

Band & Stallionettes

Concert Band

The band program at Providence is always growing.  Our band represents our school in performances both on and off campus. They also come together with our drum line and Stallionettes in the fall to form our marching band, the Providence Stallion Brigade. The Stallion Brigade had an outstanding 2017 season competing in the Florida Marching Band Championship regional competition. At the Jacksonville University Marching Invitational, they came in best in class for the visual caption. The group also earned second in class overall and Superior drum major.

Students will, with the director’s help, choose from Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Baritone, Trombone, Tuba or Percussion.

Competitions

Our bands participate in the Florida Bandmasters Association’s Music Performance Assessments (MPA’s) such as Marching MPA, Solo and Ensemble, and Concert MPA. These events inspire excellence, as we prepare music for adjudication. Our students routinely earn Excellent and Superior ratings. Our performance at FBA District Marching MPA this year was record setting. The band was awarded an overall Excellent rating, earning Superior in the Visual and General Effect captions for the first time in school history!  We also received Excellent ratings from both Music judges, Excellent in Percussion, and a Superior in Auxiliary.
