Instructor: Mr. Volo
Prerequisite: 1 credit Concert Band/Audition/Invitation
The Wind Ensemble is a "new" this year in the sense that it's been a decade since it existed in its current format due to lower enrollment in band courses. It is a select group of students in grades 9-12 who play woodwind, brass, or percussion instruments. Membership is determined through an audition and the consent of the director after a one year pre-requisite in Concert Band. A student’s admittance to and continued participation in the Wind Ensemble are at the discretion of the director. Developing and refining higher level performance skills is a major focus of this performing group. The Wind Ensemble combines with the Concert Band to perform at concerts, festivals, community events, and the Memorial Day Parade. The Wind Ensemble is required to attend all rehearsals held outside of school time.
