The Music Department[edit]

Enterprise High Schooll is known for its marching and concert bands, which have been directed by Daniel Neece, who retired in 2013, since the 1980s. The marching and concert bands are now directed by Micheal Costa. Alissa Aune, who also directs the choir program, now directs the "Starship" program, a pop-oriented music program which gives well-known performances in Redding and elsewhere. Under her direction the choirs in the traditional choral program have received "Superior Ratings" for twenty consecutive years. Enterprise is also the home of the award winning vocal jazz choir "T.B.A." This fine ensemble has won numerous awards in competition over the years and was recognized by Down Beat magazine in 2003 as the top Student Vocal Jazz Group of the year. Enterprise is also the home of the "Victorian Dinner Celebration" now in its 26th year of sold-out performances. This original dinner/play set in a Victorian Christmas holiday venue offers audience members an unforgettable evening of comedy, delicious food, and beautiful vocal and instrumental music. Both Neece and Deborah Divine, the former choir teacher, have been recognized as the California Music Educator Association (CMEA) "Educator-Of-The-Year" in 2006 and 2007 respectively.

The music department offers a variety of extra music classes for those interested. The band programs includes two jazz bands, various instrumental ensembles, and the percussion ensemble. The choir program offers chamber choir, women's choir, T.B.A., and Victorian caroling for those who make tryouts.
