Concert Band & Wind Ensemble

 

Concert Band (MUS 166) and Wind Ensemble (MUS 162) provide a musically creative opportunity for students who play wind, brass, and percussion instruments to collaborate together. The course fulfills Ensemble credit for the Music AA and Music AA-T degrees, and focuses on the study of fundamentals (scales, rhythm, tuning), and standard wind band repertoire. Prior experience on an instrument is suggested for Concert Band and required for Wind Ensemble. If you have any questions about ensembles here at SBVC, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Department Chair, Margaret Worsley (mworsley@valleycollege.edu).

Concert Band and Wind Ensemble meet during the semester on Monday nights at 6pm.

You may perform any standard piece of repertoire of your choice. Audition appointment signups are posted on the office door of Professor Matie Scully, North Hall room 134. Time slots are within the following parameters:
