Wind Ensemble (H)

Period 4

This is our advanced second auditioned wind group. Advanced players who are nearly ready for Wind Orchestra are selected for this ensemble from auditions held in late May. This ensemble rehearses and performs class “A” and “AA” wind band literature. This ensemble meets once a day during the school year. The Wind Ensemble performs at the fall, winter, and spring concerts, the all-district band concert and SCSBOA festivals. Private lessons are strongly encouraged.
