Westwinds currently operates a wide variety of ensembles at multiple skill levels in four families. Choose the musical family below to get more information about each ensemble.
In general, Westwinds members self-place themselves into a group based on their own experience, skill and comfort level. Entry into Jazz ensembles at the Gold level is at the discretion of the Ensemble Director. Choral Ensemble is an auditioned group.
Groups which do not audition may participate in a Placement process, designed to assess the member's musical ability and assist in determining whether they are in the right group and to assess their place within that group.
