Wind Orchestra is the pinnacle of performance within the programme. Its members are invited to audition for the available positions within the ensemble. A high level of expertise and commitment are required from the participants, as the ensemble performs music that is generally orchestral in nature and demanding in both musicianship and professional skill. This ensemble is invited to tour regularly and continues to receive recognition for its commitment to excellence throughout Australia and New Zealand.
