Enka High School Band
Committing to Excellence
The Enka High School Band offers a wide variety of ensembles including: Marching Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band and small ensembles. Our program is centered around the total music education package with our concert bands being the center of the program. Our ensembles have consistently received Superior and Excellent ratings in both concert and marching band festivals. Our students are represented in county, district and state level events in both concert and jazz clinics.
The Enka High School Band is under the direction of Mr. Kevin Young. Kevin is a native of Weaverville, NC and is a graduate of Mars Hill University. Mr. Young is a sought out trumpeter, adjudicator and teacher throughout all of Western NC. Mr. Young is in his seventh year teaching and his third here at Enka. He is only the fourth band director in the history of our program following Roger Caldwell, John L. Lackey, and Ralph Middleton. Prior to Enka, Mr. Young was the director at Asheville Middle School where his ensembles received Superior ratings in concert and jazz music performance adjudication events. In 2016, his Jazz Band at AMS performed for the NC Music Educators Conference in Winston-Salem, NC. Mr. Young resides in Weaverville, NC with his lovely wife Amanda and two boys, Chase and Colby. He is proud to be a jet.
