HONORS WIND ENSEMBLE
Grades 11, 12
Full Year: 5 credits
Prerequisite: One year minimum of ensemble experience at the high school level, plus satisfactory audition and department recommendation. Students entering their junior or senior year who are taking Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Guitar or Wind Ensemble are eligible to audition for honors credit status. Honors status is an extension of the coursework required for the ensemble. In addition to the standard curriculum for the ensemble, there is additional workload and course expectations.
Goal: The overall goal of offering honors credit within an ensemble is to provide an opportunity to award due credit to music students who tirelessly dedicate themselves to their art. The program seeks to develop and enrich a student’s performance capabilities, musical perceptivity, artistic sensitivity, and overall musicianship. Students, in turn, earn honors credit that is to be weighted in their GPA.
