Jazz Bands

There are two Jazz Bands at Hempfield Area High School. Jazz Band One. Both ensembles are selected by audition in September. With the exception of rhythm section instruments, students must participate in the marching and concert band to audition for Jazz Band One. Jazz Band two is open to any student in the school, although nearly all participate in the wider band program.
Jazz Band 1

Jazz Band One is one of the premier outreach group in our school. In addition to playing several concerts throughout the year, the group plays throughout the Greensburg community and greater Western Pennsylvania.

The band has performed in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Hawaii. In 2015 the band was honored to perform with guitarist Chuck Loeb of the Grammy winning jazz quartet Foreplay. The band has also entertained at our State Capital, Universal's City Walk and at Disney Springs in Orlando. 

Jazz Band 2

Jazz Band Two focuses more on learning to play the swing style and to be comfortable at improvising. Often made up of younger students, this group also performs throughout the Westmoreland community.

The Spartan Marching Band

has traveled coast to coast and performed for hundreds of thousands. Performances at the Tournament of Roses, Statue of Liberty, Flight 93 Memorial and Pearl Harbor are among the band’s most memorable. The band has also paraded in Disneyworld, Texas, Virginia, Washington DC, and many local events.  In 2019 the band will travel to London England, where they have been invited to perform for the London New Year's Day Parade and Festival on January 1, 2020. 

CONCERT BAND

performs 2 concert annually, in December and May. The band will perform in London for the Festival accompanying London New Year's Day Parade.
