Winds Across the BayWinds Across the Bay
Winds Across the Bay is a Wind Ensemble (like an Orchestra, but without the Strings, except for the occasional Double Bass) for musicians at an advanced skill level (nominally 8th-12th grades). It is open to middle and high school students who display a high-intermediate to advanced musical proficiency in any wind, brass or percussion instrument, as well as a desire to enhance their ability in the instrumental performing arts.
Membership is by audition only. Tuition for the 2010-11 season is $560, plus a $40 'Performance Supplement' that includes two tickets to each performance, and a CD recording of each concert. Included in the tuition is a yearly membership in the group, including Instrument Clinics several times a year given by local Professionals. Financial Assistance is available.
Winds is intended to supplement the individual school music programs and is not intended to supercede the music education currently being provided in the schools. Winds works together with school programs to provide young musicians with an additional opportunity to perform quality music in a professional atmosphere.
