The Leadership Conservatory Wind Ensemble at Tarpon Springs High School is a concert organization devoted to collaborative music making and granting the composer and his audience the most faithful performances of his music; it is an ensemble which calls upon the strictest of disciplines. We are devoted to providing concepts that will allow our students to become artists and in turn become responsible for their own learning and artistic discovery.
The Wind Ensemble has received top honors at the following:
Presently, there are two Wind Ensembles in the conservatory. These ensembles are selected by audition only. Students are placed in the ensemble that best fits their skills set and that will allow them the most musical and personal growth as a performer. Wind Ensemble I student expectations are to successfully perform Grade 6 and Collegiate Level literature. Wind Ensemble II student expectations are to successfully perform Grade 4 and 5 literature. In the Conservatory our curriculum is student centered and focuses on the development of the individual. All Wind Ensemble students are required to participate in our district Solo and Ensemble Festival and perform in our annual student recital that takes place in January or February. In true formal symphony tradition, students in the Wind Ensemble are required to wear black tuxedos for the men and long black dresses for the women at all performances.
