Course Information

This advanced instrumental ensemble performs a broad range of music for winds and percussion in at least one concert each quarter.  Membership is determined by audition.  Both performance music and scales are practiced during wind ensemble's daily class rehearsals.  Throughout the year, each band member is expected to improve his/her technique and understanding of music. Wind ensemble participates in solo and large group contests each year.  Auditions for honor band and All State Band are encouraged.
