Wind Ensemble, you are REQUIRED to participate in Solo/Ensemble Festival. You must have a selection chosen by Feb. 1st.

If you choose a chamber ensemble piece, you will be responsible for putting your ensemble together, and rehearsing on your own.
Concert Band, you are not REQUIRED to participate in Solo/Ensemble Festival. If you plan on moving up to Wind Ensemble next year, it is HIGHLY recommended that you consider this experience.
