Meets during WHITE 1
Open to students in grades 9-12
The Blue Symphonic Winds provides students with a balanced comprehensive study of music that develops skills in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains. Ensemble and solo activities are designed to develop elements of musicianship including tone production, technical skills, intonation, music reading skills, listening skills, analyzing music, studying historically significant styles of literature, and integration of other applicable disciplines. Students study a varied repertoire of developmentally appropriate concert band literature and develop the ability to understand and convey the composer’s intent in performance of music.
The Blue Symphonic Winds performs at ISSMA organizational festival every spring. In 2019, the band earned a GOLD WITH DISTINCTION rating for their stage and sight-reading performances with a difficult and challenging program. Additionally, the band also provides entertainment at sporting events as the Blue Athletic Winds.
