CONCERTWINDS

FROM HUMOUR AND PASSION MUSIC IS MADE

Our intermediate concert band is comprised of talented students between grades 7 - 12. The students strengthen their technical, musical, and ensemble abilities through rehearsals and performances of the finest concert band literature. The Concert Winds students are eager to develop musical mastery.  

It is recommended that students have at least 2 years' experience on their instrument when entering CW if they have only ever been involved in their school band. If students are enrolled in private instruction, then a level of RCM 3 is recommended.

THE UNBEATABLE POWER OF UNIFIED MUSIC

The Symphonic Wind Ensemble is the most advanced ensemble of the Greater Vancouver Youth Music Academy. This group navigates exceptionally challenging repertoire on deeply emotional levels. Standing ovations, thunderous applause and encores are earned by its musicianship and determination.

 

It is comprised of students 25 years of age or younger who have at least 3 years of experience on their instrument. Students demonstrate a high standard of intonation, rhythmic integrity, and emotional musicality.

This ensemble devours music, reading and performing 35-40 pieces a year. Compositions include iconic classics and modern masterpieces.  The goal is to produce unforgettably emotional musical experiences for the performers and audience members alike.
