Community Wind Ensemble Gears Up for Second Season
ROCKLIN, Calif. - William Jessup University Community Wind Ensemble has announced plans for its second season. Under the direction of Van B. Crane, the Ensemble begins rehearsal on September 1st at 7:00 pm. Plans for the upcoming year include concerts on campus as well as performances in several nearby communities.
Begun last Fall to provide performance opportunities for the instrumental music students at WJU, the ensemble has expanded to include instrumentalists of all ages from throughout the surrounding communities of Colfax, Auburn, Folsom, Carmichael, Fair Oaks, as well as Rocklin, Roseville and Lincoln.
“There is always room for more qualified musicians,” explained Crane. “While places could be found for interested musicians in all sections of the Ensemble, we are actively recruiting those who play oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, French horn, trombone and percussion.”
The Ensemble is open to adult musicians who have a desire to participate in a community ensemble that will be performing some of the great band music of all time—marches, show tunes, classics, and other traditional music for band. Qualified high school musicians are also welcome to join with the permission of their Band Directors.
The Ensemble rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 pm at the WJU Campus (333 Sunset Blvd., Rocklin). Musicians interested in joining the Ensemble or simply desiring more information should contact Van Crane at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 253-3718.
