At Soddy Daisy High School, the band program combines with award-winning programs in art, choir, forensics, and theater to form the remarkable Fine Arts department.  The Wind Ensemble, a 45 to 60 member select ensemble, is the top performing group in the band program.  The instrumental program at Soddy-Daisy includes two concert ensembles selected by audition, 2 Jazz Bands, various Chamber Ensembles, Color Guard, Winter Guard and the Trojan Marching Band.  Our students participate in the ETSBOA All-Region Band and Orchestra as well as the Tennessee All-State Band each year.  The Soddy-Daisy Bands have enjoyed numerous Sweepstakes awards and Superior Ratings at Regional and State Concert Festivals and contests.  The Marching band has received numerous awards as an Area participant and performances at Bands of America and USBands competitions.  The Soddy-Daisy Band’s most notable achievements include being selected to perform in the 2013 Sydney Music Festival in Sydney, Austrailia and Marching in the 2010 Tournament of Roses Parade.  

Most Hamilton County students begin band in sixth grade, and those attending Soddy-Daisy come from two middle schools: Loftis Middle School (Drew Daniels, director) and Soddy-Daisy Middle School (Stefan Logue, director).  In middle school, students begin their instrumental instruction in homogenous classes and then participate in concert bands in seventh and eighth grade.  Credit for the strength and success of the Soddy-Daisy HS band program must be shared with these committed middle school teachers.
