Wind Symphony Auditions


The Wind Symphony (BYWS) is for serious high school band students who have demonstrated a proficiency on their instrument. This ensemble performs fully scored works for wind symphony. Students at this level are committed to a seriousness of purpose and demonstrate a professional level of preparedness for rehearsals and performances.  Wind Symphony is comprised of wind, brass, and percussion students in Grades 9-12 and rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 at Great Bridge Middle School (December-May).*
