The MHS Concert Band is the third concert band on campus, comprised of those students who choose not to audition at the end of the previous school year for the Wind Ensemble or Symphonic Band. Students in the Concert Band are often students at MHS who are involved in other activities - which is encouraged at Monterey High School. The Concert Band aims for the same performance expectations as the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band, and students in this group are encouraged to audition for the All-Region Bands and participate in UIL Solo and Ensemble contest. Placements in all three concert bands are reevaluated every semester. Students in all three concert bands participate in the marching band, the "Swingin' Beat from 50th Street!"
