In Wind Ensemble, advanced concert band (music grades 4, 5 and 6) and chamber music literature is performed. Literature is composed by leading band composers and arrangers from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Admittance to the ensemble is by audition only and therefore mature musicianship is required to participate in the course. An emphasis will be placed on advanced techniques for each respective instrument. In addition to performances, students will be expected to complete repertoire tests, scale pattern tests and historical context quizzes. Auditions occur in mid May.
