The Wind Ensemble class (#7193) is composed of select brass and woodwind players who annually audition to be included in the group. It prepares and performs high-level band works and transcriptions. These works are well suited for this smaller ensemble (35-45 musicians). The Wind Ensemble represents the school as the finest they have to offer at district and regional festivals and concerts both on and off campus. This ensemble performs band literature at both the advanced high school and collegiate levels covering all genres of musical style.
The Symphonic Band class (#7203) is open to all qualified brass and woodwind players. The course is oriented toward the preparation and performance of high-quality band literature as well as encouraging improvement of music fundamentals and technical playing skills.
