The Ponderosa Wind Ensemble is the advanced-level wind and percussion ensemble in the Music Department at Ponderosa High School.  The group is made up of students in all four grade levels and rehearses during 8th period during the 2018-2019 school year.

Students in this group are expected to prepare a wide variety of challenging music of many different styles and time periods.  They typically perform 5 to 6 times a year at concerts in our theatre, special events in the community, and at the Colorado Bandmasters' Association Regional Concert Band Festival each spring.

Wind Ensemble is an audition-only group; students must audition for the director in order to be accepted into this ensemble.
