WIND ENSEMBLE

Wind Ensemble is the premier performance class for advanced-level wind and percussion instrumentalists. Students work for refinement of ensemble skills toward the collegiate level, mastery of music reading skills, and sound performance fundamentals through the study and performance of standard and contemporary wind band literature and active listening. Instrumentation is limited and an audition is required for acceptance into the ensemble. Offsite performances and workshops/sectionals required of all members.
