WSC Chamber Music

 

Wayne State College offers a number of performance opportunities for students interested in performing chamber music.  Ensembles with limited instrumentation are available in the areas of Woodwind, Brass and Percussion.

 

Brass Ensembles
The Brass Ensembles include a large brass choir and Brass Quintets (2 trumpets, horn, trombone or euphonium, tuba or bass trombone).  These can be formed independently or with faculty supervision, and can be registered courses or informal.  The quintets' education covers both preparation of recital repertoire from all musical eras and the pursuit of playing opportunities outside of the school.  Trumpet, French horn, trombone, and tuba/euphonium may be formed as well.

 

Percussion Ensemble
The percussion ensemble contains all of the traditional drums and mallet percussion instruments, as well as many auxiliary and world percussion instruments.  They rehearse and perform original and transcribed music for percussion in a wide variety of styles.

 

String Ensemble
The string ensemble rehearses and performs interesting, exciting and challenging music for bowed string instruments.  It is open to all students and area residents who play the violin, viola, cello or bass.

 

Woodwind Ensemble
In the woodwind ensemble students have the opportunity to perform in various groups such as flute choir, clarinet choir, saxophone quartet, or mixed ensembles.  The various ensembles perform each semester both on and off the Wayne State College campus.
