The Jr. High Wind Ensemble consists of 7th and 8th-grade students. The wind ensemble meets every other day (alternates with Physical Education). Students who choose to be in both wind ensemble and choir will attend their instrumental ensemble 2/3 days and the choir 1/3 days (ie. wind ensemble day 1, 3; choir day 5). Wind Ensemble students are scheduled for one pull-out lesson every 6 days, and for full credit must attend 5/7 lessons per quarter. Shared students will divide their lessons between ensembles.
The wind ensemble performs at a winter and spring concert (dates available on the music home page) which counts as the students' midterm and final. All concerts are mandatory.
