Welcome to the Newport High School Band in Bellevue, Washington
The Newport Band Program is made up of hundreds of talented, motivated and energetic high school students. The program has a long running tradition of producing highly refined and gifted performing musicians. Band students at Newport are given the amazing opportunity to play and compete in a variety of quality ensembles, receive excellent instruction, perform in a variety of unique and exciting venues and represent their community all across the country.
Students who participate in our program are automatically inducted into the fantastic Newport Marching Band as well as our grade-level based large ensemble classrooms. In addition, students can audition for our exciting jazz program. What’s more, students have the chance to perform at local events, including school basketball games, assemblies, solo and ensemble festivals, and much more.
For our student athletes, we make it easy to be both athletic and musical, by accommodating practice and game schedules as much as possible to allow for the broadest participation.
