Wind Ensemble

Mark Heron, Alberto Roque and  Douglas Bostock                     

In association with the BASBWE Education Trust


The Wind Ensemble is designed for experienced amateurs and students to rehearse and perform significant repertoire written for the medium.

This year the core of the repertoire will centre around the music of celebrated Sherborne (Canford) alumni and teaching staff. It is hoped that several of them will spend time with the Wind Conducting class and assist in the preparation of their works for performance with the Wind Ensemble. Works marked with an asterisk are pieces that are by composers associated with the summer school.

Some of the repertoire will be studied in depth and form the basis for several concerts the Wind Ensemble gives during the week. The remainder will be played in repertoire sessions. There will be opportunities for chamber music and there is close liaison with the Wind Conducting Course.

Applicants are asked to note any “doubling” instruments they play and can bring on their application form.
