Wind and Percussion Ensemble

Joan deAlbuquerqueAttention Fall 2014 First-Year/Transfer Students: Auditions for Wind and Percussion happen during Orientation Week at the beginning of the Fall Semester. Please consult the Orientation Handbook and look at Appendix II for specific dates and times. Excerpts of pieces are sent out for most of the instrumental ensembles.

The Wind and Percussion Ensemble consists primarily of outstanding band students. Membership is determined by audition. The ensemble is limited to approximately 50 students with a controlled instrumentation who rehearse three days a week. The size and quality of the ensemble allows an intense attitude in terms of rehearsal and performance material. In addition to family weekend performances and Dorian Band Festival performance, the Wind and Percussion ensemble gives a full concert each semester.

Joan deAlbuquerque conducts the Wind and Percussion Ensemble.

Auditions for Wind and Percussion Ensemble are held each semester.

Wind and Percussion Ensemble rehearses MWF 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. Rehearsal location for Wind and Percussion Ensemble is in the Sperati Band Room.
