The Mary Persons Wind Symphony is an auditioned ensemble composed of the finest instrumentalist at Mary Persons High School. This group performs four times a year. Our most popular concerts are our Christmas Production and our Spring Concert. We have around four after school rehearsals per semester in order to combine our two classes in order for us to play together as a group before our performances. Our students are assessed through more advanced musical performance and knowledge.
The Mary Persons Wind Symphony is not only focused on the development of the more advanced musician, but more importantly the development of the person. Through the development of healthy habits of becoming a better musician our students will develop better time management skills, a better work ethic, initiative, pride and team work that will hopefully surpass their other schoolmates. In a time where acceptance to colleges and universities have never been more competitive and a shrinking job market we find it important to try to give our students the motivation and leadership experience necessary to be a marketable individual in a highly competitive world.
