The Wind Orchestra performs a wide variety of literature, including original wind ensemble pieces, marches, chamber music, and transcriptions of orchestral works. The focus of training is concentrated on performance standards, tone production, precision, musicality, individual and group style, and practice habits. The ensemble gives several concerts a year and has performed occasionally with The College of Saint Rose’s Wind Ensemble. Along with all of ESYO’s ensembles, the Wind Orchestra is a regular performer in ESYO’s annual Playathon.
Rehearsals are generally held on Sunday afternoons from
2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at The Massry Center at The College of Saint Rose unless otherwise noted.
Entrance auditions are held in June.
