This is an intermediate wind band that develops ensemble playing further in a stepping stone training ground for the Symphonic Wind Band. The Schools’ Wind Band perform to a high level, playing traditional and contemporary repertoire. It is where students gain more confidence in following a conductor, raise their awareness of their part in the ensemble and play more complicated music.
