The Wind Ensemble is a select group of students in grades 10-12 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.
