Wind Ensemble


The Santa Teresa Wind Ensemble is the advanced concert band at Santa Teresa High School.  You must audition to get into this band.  Auditions are held in the spring.

Instruction in this ensemble focuses on the preparation of music in a variety of types and styles for public concerts, adjudicated festivals, and other events along with a focus on high school level band technique (tone, rhythmic accuracy, technical facility, articulation, intonation, blend, balance, and musical expression). Students are required to participate in all performances by the group.

This Ensemble requires an increased level of commitment by the students who have demonstrated to Ms. Bounds superior levels of knowledge, enthusiasm, self-direction, and skill. This is the opportunity for advanced musicians to showcase their talent.
