Wind Ensemble

The Wind Ensemble is made up of approximately 60 members and is established through auditions at the end of the marching season. The very best musicians in our band program become members of the Wind Ensemble. Many of its members are also members of the All-West Tennessee Band, the All-State Tennessee Band, the All-West and All-State Tennessee Orchestra, the Memphis Youth Symphony, and the Memphis Youth String Orchestra. Wind Ensemble plays and interprets the highest level of high school band literature. They present several concerts a year and take a trip each spring to compete nationally. The Wind Ensemble is under the direction of Matt Taylor.
