Wind Ensemble will is the flagship band ensemble and students will earn placement through either a successful completion of their music portfolios in Concert Band and Symphonic Band or an individual audition. Wind Ensemble will continue the large ensemble, chamber ensemble and individual skill development from the Symphonic Band curriculum. In addition to skill level, an important aspect of Wind Ensemble will be the balancing out of each section in the band in accordance with the standards of the modern concert band. Wind Ensemble performs five concerts annually including a domestic tour and representing our program at the MSHSL Large Group Band Festival.
This ensemble is directed by Reid Wixson.
