Thank you for your interest in joining the Pleasant Valley High School Wind Ensemble! I look forward to meeting you.
Auditions will be held during the spring semester for the fall semester. Students are adjudicated on five factors: Tone production, Tempo and Rhythmic Accuracy, Intonation and Pitch Accuracy, Articulation, and Phrasing.
Remember, if you don't make it into Wind Ensemble for this fall, you will automatically be placed in Concert Band, and that is PERFECTLY ok!
If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Heimlich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submission is SUNDAY, APRIL 7TH AT 11:59PM.
