Mr. Gonzalez is the Head Band Director, and Mr. Ortega is the Assistant Band Director for Northbrook High School.
During the fall semester, the Northbrook High School Band performs as the Ragin' Raider Marching Band. The band performs at all the varsity football games, pep rallies, several parades and Pre-UIL and UIL Marching Contests and local marching festivals. In 2006-2007, the N.H.S. Ragin' Raider Band performed at the Sam Houston State Festival and received First Place in their division. In 2007-2008, they returned to defend their spot and were awarded First Place in their division for the second year in a row.
During the spring semester, the N.H.S. Band students perform as the Northbrook HS Symphonic Band and the Concert Band. The bands perform a Holiday Concert, Mid-Winter and Spring Concert. We also compete at our Pre-UIL and UIL Concert Contest and Sight Reading.
*We have also added a new class this year and are super excited about our newest performing group, the NHS Jazz Band. We hope to learn new and exciting music and styles to showcase in our concerts.
