Playing Tests
A schedule of playing tests for the Wind Symphony will be developed after selection of music is finalized. Testing will be over selected measures of performance materials, scales, or assigned etudes. Normally, testing takes place via stereo recorders in practice rooms during 1st hour. With the limited amount of use allowed with practice rooms, this year students will submit playing tests by submiting video recordings. Testing dates, materials, and information are listed below:
