AMEA 2019 Performing Groups


The Oak Mountain Symphonic Band is the second of three wind bands at Oak Mountain High School. It consists of seventy-one ninth through twelfth grade students at Oak Mountain High School. Membership in the band is determined by individual audition.


Under the direction of Dr. Travis Bender, the ensemble


performs a wide variety of genres in the high school wind band repertoire. Notably, this ensemble frequently performs newly published compositions for wind band. Under the baton of Dr. Bender, this ensemble has only received adjudicated ratings of superior at all contests and festivals. Since the school’s inception, the Oak Mountain Symphonic Band has twice been invited to perform at the National Band and Orchestra Festival at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In the spring of 2016, the Symphonic Band was invited to perform at the Music for All National Band Festival in Indianapolis. A performance at AMEA would be a first for this ensemble, and allow attendees to hear new band literature graded 3.5 to 5 at our state’s music conference.


The Spain Park High School Symphonic Winds have most recently performed as part of the 2018 Music For All Southeastern Regional Concert Band Festival in Atlanta, GA, the 2016 University of Alabama- Birmingham Concert Band Invitational in Birmingham, AL and the 2015 University of Alabama Honor Band Festival in Tuscaloosa, AL. They have consistently earned Superior Ratings at the Alabama Bandmasters Association Music Performance Assessment.


The Thompson High School Wind Ensemble was formed in 2001, the result of tremendous growth in the Thompson High School Band program that allowed for the creation of another performing ensemble. The Wind Ensemble is 65 members strong with the majority being juniors and seniors. Since the inception of the Wind Ensemble they have earned straight superior ratings at all Alabama Bandmasters Association District and State Evaluations. The Thompson Wind Ensemble is also a five time recipient of the National Band Association’s Citation of Excellence Award as well as a recipient of the NBA Programs of Excellence “Blue Ribbon” Award for 2013/2014 In addition, they have also earned straight superior ratings from other regional competitions throughout the southeast, most recently Festivals of Music in South Carolina, Smoky Mountain Music Festival in Tennessee, the Alamo Music Festival in San Antonio, Texas, and the Dixie Classic National Adjudicators Invitational in St. Louis, MO. Most notably, the Wind Ensemble was selected as a guest performer for the Southeastern United States Concert Band Clinic held on the campus of Troy University, Troy, AL in February 2007, the Alabama Music Educators Association in-Service Conference in 1997, 2009 and 2014, the Music for All National Concert Band Festival in 2011 and 2015, the 2012 CBDNA / NBA Southern Division Conference at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, GA , the 2014 JanFest at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA , UAB Honor Band Festival in 2015 and the Alabama Honor Band Festival in February of 2010 and 2018 Membership into the Wind Ensemble is through an audition / selection process. While the members are serious and dedicated to the performance of outstanding symphonic wind literature, few students actually study privately. The Wind Ensemble consistently has members selected for the Alabama Bandmasters Associations All State Music Festival and for the many university sponsored honor band festivals throughout Alabama. Other performing ensembles at Thompson High School include the 200 member “Marching Southern Sounds”, the 65 member Symphonic Band, the 60 member Concert Band, various chamber ensembles and the 19 member Thompson Jazz Band.
