Chamber Ensemble

Students rehearse one of the following times at GMSN band room (groups are combined for N&S):
Tuesdays 3:30-4:15
Wednesdays 7:35-8:20 am
Thursdays 3:30-4:15
Students are placed in one of these groups at the start of the year depending on their availability. Practices start the week of September 12 and run until the concert in December.
Small group experience for students that play instruments not included in jazz band repertoire (including but not limited to flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, French horn). Having a small group experience allows these students to develop their technique in a setting focused on their instrument's specifics. The size of the group also requires that students exhibit increased leadership, as they often are soloists or share their part with only one other person. Students participate in their ensemble once per week in the morning before school beginning in September. The experience culminates in chamber ensemble concerts in which students perform the repertoire they have been rehearsing.
