During the fall marching season, band and color guard students come together as a team to form the Upland Highland Regiment. During the second semester, the focus shifts to these separate groups as they perform at festivals and competitions: Jazz Ensemble, Stage Band, Pipe Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Winter Guard, and Winter Percussion.
Jazz Ensemble & Stage Band
Our two jazz bands, Jazz Ensemble and Stage Band, are also known as Upland Jazz I and Upland Jazz II respectively. Students are selected based on their audition results. Like a varsity team, Jazz Ensemble is the top jazz band, and Stage Band is our junior varsity group. Both bands perform and compete at various festivals during the jazz season.
The UHS Pipe Band is rebuilding and has plans to attend the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland in August 2025! Join us! No experience necessary – our amazing directors will teach you.
Symphonic Band & Wind Ensemble
These two bands perform at school concerts and offsite festivals during the second semester. All students are welcomed to enroll in Symphonic Band, but Wind Ensemble is an audition-based performing group.
Highlanders are our junior high school team. They are beginners and this is where they start to learn
basic concepts of drill, equipment, and performance.
A Guard is our junior varsity team for beginners and intermediate. This is where they begin to develop
their range of performance skills and add more challenging work to prepare for Open Guard.
Open Guard is our varsity team. They are more advanced and explore greater challenges in their
routines with emphasis on more complex equipment and body skills set in more challenging programs.
Winter Percussion is an indoor percussion ensemble consisting of battery and front ensemble instruments. It is a competition group with performances that typically involve both playing music and performance.
