Wind Ensemble is the 10th-12th grade MVHS concert band. It consists of several members of the woodwind instrument family, brass instrument family, and percussion instrument family. Performances include traditional band repertoire such as original wind compositions, light music, popular tunes and marches. It is a year long class with four concert performances throughout the year in the Performing Arts Theater. During the second semester our Wind Ensemble participates in a Festival. A student will audition for Wind Ensemble in late spring of their freshman year in Symphonic Band.
During the second semester, our Orchestra, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble and Jazz groups participate in Festivals which offer the opportunity of showcasing a high standard of performance through the use of the music lists and adjudication by trained and qualified experts in music education. The SCSBOA (Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association) believes that the comments and suggestions of these adjudicators will help the development of each soloist, ensemble, or performing organization.
