Congratulations to the Spring 2013 members of the UWG Wind Ensemble!
Congratulations to the members of the Fall 2012 Wind Ensemble!!!
Please plan on meeting in the band room at 3:30 on Wednesday; we will pass out Aurora Awakes as well as Rhapsody in Blue (along with folders). Note that both of these pieces are closer to a one-on-a-part “Wind Ensemble” instrumentation (Aurora Awakes a little less so). If you are not playing on either of these two pieces you WILL be playing with the group on the rest of the concert… unless we do a brass fanfare.
Again, thank you so much to everyone who auditioned!!!

Wind Ensemble Auditions will take place next week (August 20-24) at the following times:
Wednesday 3:00-6:00 (Percussion please sign up for the last 8-10 time slots on this day if at all possible)
Please sign up for a time slot on the band room door; wind auditions will consist of three scales (your choice), a prepared piece (your choice), and sight-reading. Percussionists need to bring prepared pieces on as many instruments as you’d like (timpani, snare, marimba) and will sight-read as well (NO SCALES).
If you cannot make any of the above time slots PLEASE contact me to schedule an audition:
678-839-6267 (feel free to leave a message)
We will rehearse on Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 until Marching Band ends; after that we will rehearse Tuesday through Friday at the same times (Don’t worry if you have a class conflict when we go to the “full week” model; we’ll work it out). If you have friends that might be interested PLEASE TELL THEM TO GIVE IT A TRY!!!
Lastly, if you’re wondering what Wind Ensemble is like please ask a veteran member. We’ve got some awesome music set to go and I am really excited about the concert season (just Google “Aurora Awakes” and see what you think…)!
