The Wind Ensemble is a balanced ensemble of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. The Marquette Wind Ensemble meets during the seventh hour of the school day, and is the premier concert ensemble in the band program. The Wind Ensemble is comprised of students in grades 9 - 12 who are at an advanced level of performance on their instrument. The Marquette Wind Ensemble will perform 5-6 concerts per year, including the Missouri State Large Ensemble Festival in the spring semester.
Placements for the Wind Ensemble are held in February. Details about auditions will be given to students and all middle school band directors in mid-January.
