Concert Ensembles

Wind Ensemble

 

The Wind Ensemble is a very selective “top” level group of young musicians. Each member is expected to act as mature gentlemen and ladies. This group may travel and have after school rehearsals. In all possible cases, at least three weeks notification of any extra performance will be given. Students are required to attend all outside-of-class performances and rehearsals. If a scheduled event is missed without a valid excuse, a “0” will be given to the student as a test grade. (The director will merit if the excuse is valid.)

 

For concerts, we will wear concert black dress attire unless otherwise directed by Mr. Brittain

 

 

Wind Ensemble - MPA 2018

On March 19th, the WLHS Wind Ensemble traveled to North Lincoln High School for their annual Music Performance Adjudication event. This event rates our band program in accordance with State Standards. In short, it is our biggest exam (EOC) that ranks us in the state. 

 

The event requires students to play 3 separate prepared pieces differing in style and based on specific grade levels as well as play through a sight reading session where students must achieve marks based on a timed performance on the spot (no prior preparation). Out of 6 potential levels, our group performed in Grade IV/V split. 

After their performance the West Lincoln Wind Ensemble earned the highest rating of SUPERIOR - scoring straight 1's from all judges!! This makes the second straight year of this incredible performance!
