wind-brass-percussion banner

We are delighted to offer an exciting opportunity for Winds, Brass & Percussion students at Western to compete to perform a concerto with the Western University Wind Ensemble or Symphonic Band. All undergraduate, diploma, and masters woodwind, brass, and percussion students who are enrolled in a large ensemble and private lessons at Western are eligible to compete in this competition. Multi-player concerti (duos, trios) are acceptable, but all performers must be current students (ie. with the above large ensemble/lesson eligibilities met).

The Competition is held mid-September with the performance held in the same academic year.

For Rules & Regulations, please contact the Winds, Brass & Percussion division coordinator, Jill Ball or a Winds, Brass & Percussion studio instructor.
