Symphonic Winds is the highest level ensemble on campus at George Walton. The students that are accepted into this group by audition only play a variety of the hardest literature available for this age group. Members of the Symphonic Winds are typically high school with the exceptional 8th grader allowed an opportunity to try out by invitation only. In this ensemble’s brief history, students have had the opportunity to perform at our school’s Veteran’s Day Assembly, our Christmas Concert, Spring Concert and the students get the chance to participate in the Spring Festival. Trips for Spring festival have included Charleston, Chattanooga and Atlanta. Symphonic Winds has also been a guest performer at the UGA Middle School Festival in 2003.
The main goals of this ensemble are to continue into the advanced concepts of music making, ensemble performance, music theory and a little music history. For more information about how to be a part of this group, please contact Mr. Smith.
