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 25 students, 5 SLU faculty/staff members, and 18 community members. We played fresh and exciting music for Wind Band, and great BAND music will be on your music stands this spring. Feel free to email titles of your favorite pieces! Our theme for Spring 2020 is:
The Rich Tapestry of Diversity: Music by Women, Composers of Color, and LGBTQIA Composers
We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal value no matter what their color.
Rehearsals (starting Thursday, January 23)
- 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.
