The Wind Ensemble is an academic course which requires a recommendation and/or audition by the band director. Musicianship requirements will include advanced knowledge of scale fundamentals, interpretation skills, good tone production and advanced instrumental techniques. Students will be expected to expand their skills and knowledge of instrumental techniques, tone production, musical interpretation, and ensemble/solo performance. This ensemble is performance oriented and will be active in concert appearances, county events, and VBODA/VMEA events. As a co-curricular ensemble, performances and rehearsals outside regular school hours are a requirement.
Note that special concert attire will be required for Wind Ensemble performances. Details and fees will be forthcoming, with fittings and orders to be completed during the first semester.
