Our CCA band explores music theory, music history, and is encouraged to attend professional performances such as the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. Many student take private lessons from JSO members and teachers from local colleges. We encourage our students to perform in other areas outside our school, such as in their places of worship, and community performances such as Tuba Christmas at the Landing and Yuleslide.
The CCA Band is home to 20 percent of the schools' 5th - 12th grade student body. Students can begin their love of music and band as early as the fifth grade! All band students meet in class every day and Upper School band members rehearse after school several times per year.
CCA Band plays at home football games, pep rallies, school Chapel services, graduation, and performs several concerts each year. In addition, the Middle School band performs at the Florida Bandmasters Association Music Performance Assessment where it has been rated Superior each year.
