Welcome to the website for the Instrumental Music Program at Henry M. Gunn High School in Palo Alto, California! On these pages you will find links to each of our musical groups, to our boosters, to forms needed by music students and parents, and to information for our alumni.
The Gunn Music Program has a long and proud tradition of excellence, achieving outstanding group results while rewarding individual competence and dedication. Our student musicians have the opportunity to master a wide range of music from traditions ranging from Broadway to Bach; music theory and performance etiquette are also emphasized, which makes our program sound pretty dry. It's not--come hear one of our concerts and you'll be blown away by the passion and musicality of our groups! Best yet, the sound our student musicians make by working together to create music is the sound of teamwork, cooperation, and shared appreciation of beauty.
So, come to one of our concerts (see Calendar) and hear our student musicians. Better yet, join the Gunn Band and Orchestra Boosters (see Join Boosters) and attend any concert you wish, donation-free, while supporting the school's outstanding instrumental music program.
Come hear why Gunn ensembles are among the best in the Bay Area. Gunn music makes a wonderful difference for our student musicians. Join us, and be part of the fun!
