Each year the 320+ member FHS Tiger Band performs and competes all across Texas to the delight of many.  We are active in marching band, concert band, jazz band, and support all students to pursue success at an individual level in TMEA All-Region band and UIL Solo/Ensemble.

MARCHING  BAND

JAZZ BAND

The jazz band is another outlet for students in the Frenship band to explore their musical creativity and enhance their playing skills.  Jazz band is voluntary and open to all who are interested.  

 

Students will research the history of jazz, take note of many of the forerunners of jazz, and play repertoire that spans through the age of jazz.  Students may expect to perform at school-affiliated concerts and local venues (especially during the holidays)!
