Band

Over the years the MSC band program, under the leadership of its outstanding directors and supported by an enthusiastic and dedicated group of parent volunteers, has established a reputation as one of the very best in NSW.

The core of the BoMSC program is the Wind Stream and String Ensemble.  All BoMSC Members must play in at least one of the core Wind Stream bands or the String Ensemble.

The Wind Stream comprises three ensembles: Concert Band, Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Wind Orchestra.  The optional extension ensembles (Jazz Stream and Chamber Orchestra) and Jazz Combo support additional musical styles.

The Jazz Stream ensembles comprise Swing Band, Stage Band, Big Band and Jazz Orchestra. The String Ensemble is a stream in its own right.  Chamber Orchestra comprises selected String Ensemble members and wind and brass instruments.  Jazz combo is the senior MSC jazz improvisation group, membership by invitation.

The jazz improvisation stream is a cross-campus group open to students at any of the five Northern Beaches Secondary College campuses.
