This ensemble is open to high school instrumental students who are looking for an advanced, more intense musical experience. Students will be accepted into this ensemble by audition only, and must complete the audition process during the year before planning to take the course. Students will rehearse and perform a variety of challenging, professional-level music from different eras and musical styles. Emphasis will be placed on developing music reading skills, learning basic improvisation techniques, performing as an ensemble and as a soloist, and performing in a formal manner.
