WBHS Symphonic Winds

Symphonic Winds is a study of advanced, integrated instrumental music based upon a four year cycle. The integrated music curriculum teaches technical, resume, listening, translated, analytical, and performance skills for literature in historical and multi-cultural contexts. Symphonic Winds offers all interested students who play wind and percussion instruments an opportunity to study and perform a wide variety of music. Maintaining membership requires continued effort, interest, and proper deportment. Performances are logical outgrowth and include concerts, festivals, solos, ensembles, recitals, and appearances within the community where appropriate. Also where appropriate, the band may give a spring concert tour.  Grade Level: 10, 11, 12
Attendance at all performances as well as rehearsals scheduled outside of class is mandatory.
