All students in the band program are invited to participate in a variety of small ensembles. These “chamber groups” are made of flute trios, wind quintets, sax quartets, mixed trios, woodwind and brass choirs, percussion ensembles, etc. These smaller groups help students focus on working in teams and provide more individual accountability in music making decisions as they rehearse the groups themselves. These are experienced musicians who are prepared to play for many different occasions. Members of the community often invite these chamber ensembles to perform for their events.
