Wind Ensemble

*Thank you for your interest in YOP’s Wind Ensemble.

Unfortunately, due to ongoing rehearsal space limitations ensuing from pandemic restrictions, we are unable to offer Wind Ensemble for the 2021-2022 season.*


Intermediate-Level Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion:  Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Saxophone, Bassoon, Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Percussion


The Wind Ensemble is designed to attract motivated middle school and high school students who are eager to challenge themselves and are comfortable playing music at the level of the VBODA district band audition requirements. Wind Ensemble is a first access point into Richmond Symphony’s Youth Orchestra Program for many wind, brass and percussion players. Enrollment in each instrument is limited to ensure that student musicians get sufficient attention from the conductor and sectional coaches.  In this ensemble, students focus on developing solid rehearsal habits, tone quality, range and confidence.
