About Us

Who We Are

The Mira Mesa HS "Sapphire Sound", nicknamed the Blue Team, is an award-winning ensemble that is located in the heart of San Diego. It is the largest Band program in the San Diego Unified School District. Mira Mesa HS is a community based school, so most of our students have grown up with one another. The Band openly accepts new students each year to the program and they always look forward to the many performance opportunities they have as a group. 

The 200+ members of the Sapphire Sound are proud to represent the community of Mira Mesa in San Diego, CA. We were honored to march in the 2016 and 2022 Tournament of Roses Parades. We welcome ALL students into our program. We are the Sapphire Sound, the Blue Team! 

Thank you for your support!
