Scheduling

Honors Wind Ensemble is an honors class at Clearview Regional High School, meaning students are expected to complete work beyond the scope of a normal music student.

 

Students who successfully audition for the ensemble MUST enroll full-time

in Wind Ensemble. Any conflicts must be provided to Mr. Wiernusz as soon as possible.

 

 

Evening Rehearsals

Additional evening rehearsals may be added to the Wind Ensemble calendar in preparation for the rigorous performance schedule. Students must attend all evening rehearsals or communicate with Mr. Wiernusz well in advance of the rehearsal.

 

 

Seating & Part Assignments

 Students who successfully audition for the Wind Ensemble will be given part assignments

in the fall during the first two weeks of school. Additional preparation may be asked of students,

depending on the results of spring auditions.
