All-County Band consists of students from WSFCS Band Programs. Typically there are 2 middle school bands and 2 high school bands. If a student auditions and makes it, they will spend a full day learning music for a concert. For example, a student would be exempt from school on a Friday to learn music and that Saturday they would perform a concert.
