Wind Ensemble

The Wind Ensemble provides dedicated players the opportunity to prepare and perform challenging band literature. The ensemble is open by audition to students in grades 10-12. Wind Ensemble rehearses weekly and performs in November and March of each year. Auditions for Wind Ensemble are held in the spring for the following academic year.

Wind Ensemble is meant to augment, rather than replace, curricular music classes.  Therefore, we do expect that its members are enrolled in a school performance ensemble while they are enrolled in Wind Ensemble.
