High School Concert bands
The high school bands are directed by Tom Lizotte, who's been with the Cape Elizabeth program the past 16 years. The Symphony Band is comprised of freshmen and sophomores. It meets in two sections, which are combined for concerts. The Wind Symphony is comprised of juniors and seniors, along with selected underclassmen by audition.
