The Wind Ensemble is the most elite performing band at Spartanburg High School. Participation is limited to 10th-12th Grade Students who have demonstrated extreme versatility on their instrument from consistent practice, participate in multiple ensembles, and have a proven record of commitment to the program. This ensemble primarily performs Grade V and VI music (the most difficult levels written for band).
All expectations help us to achieve our goal of musical excellence.

Book for this Year
We will use Habits of a Successful Musician by Scott Rush this year. Please purchase this book.
For our Spring Concert each year, we play a "pops" concert. Typically, we have our concert at Barnet Park. We were rained out and ended up performing in the gym. We still had a great time performing!
Here you can enjoy the Wind Ensemble performing Star Wars!
