The Wind Ensemble is open to SLU students, faculty, and staff, as well as adult and student musicians from our local community. We'd love to have even more St. Lawrence students join us! For our spring 2019 concert, our performers included 24 students, 5 SLU faculty/staff members, and 18 community members. We played deHaan's Ammerland, Rhythm of the Winds by Erickson, A Hymn for the Lost and the Living by Ewazen, Clark's Escape from Chronopolis, Pilatus: Mountain of Dragons by Reineke, an arrangement of How to Train Your Dragon, and Williams' Symphonic Dance #3, “Fiesta." Great BAND music will be on your music stands for this fall. Feel free to email titles of your favorite pieces!
Rehearsals (starting September 3)
- Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:30-6pm, in Peterson-Kermani Performance Hall

New student members will be asked to play a short, private audition for the director. Auditions are relaxed and will consist of (1) any short piece you feel comfortable playing and (2) a short sight-reading example, which will be provided at the audition. If you do not have any music to audition with, let me know and I can provide something for you.
For more information, or to schedule an audition, contact Theresa Witmer, director.
