A High School Ensemble for the Charleston Community

Wind Ensemble FEES: None. Yay! Donations to the good of the organization are welcome. Any donations received will be used to purchase music, percussion instruments, or accessories (music stands, etc...).
T-shirts: Our awesome t-shirt with the logo on the back is available for you to purchase for $20. It is acceptable to wear this t-shirt for our performances if you want to.
Concert/Recital Attire: Modest Black. This means black top, black bottom, black shoes. The modest part means “short sleeves” or to the elbow (or beyond) and if skirts are preferred, they must cover the knees WHILE SEATED. Easy stuff… doesn't need to be fancy, just black. Can be CYW t-shirt.
Rehearsals: Attendance is important. Please treat your commitment with respect and know you will be missed if you cannot make it. Please email or text me if you are unable to make it to rehearsal. It goes without saying that if you miss too many rehearsals, we will have to discuss if you are prepared to perform. Lets just not go there… come to rehearsal!
Community Service Hours: Will be counted for the Concerts/Recitals and Church Service Accompaniment. This will equal approximately 3 hours per semester.
