Wind Ensembles

Conductor | Rosita Amador

The CYS Wind Ensemble program comprises of two orchestral winds and brass ensembles providing instruction from the introductory level to intermediate level. Students are exposed to standard transpositions and clef usage typical to their instrument in orchestral literature, and they work on orchestral style music in preparation for CYS' full symphonic orchestras. The Wind Ensembles focus on blend, articulation and introduces students to standard orchestral doublings and skill sets needed as a successful musician. 

The CYS Wind Ensembles perform at the Smithwick Theatre on the beautiful campus of Foothill College. The peformance schedule will be available soon, please continue to visit our website.
