ESYO Concertino Winds & Percussion

Recognizing the need to provide a solid foundation for beginning wind and brass players aspiring to advance their ensemble skills, ESYO started Concertino Winds in 2016 featuring a woodwind and brass choir. Starting in 2019, the program will expand to include an introductory percussion ensemble.  Concertino Winds & Percussion musicians will engage in new and exciting repertoire. Ensembles will participate in 90 minute rehearsals for ten weeks culminating in a recital at the close of the session.
