Description: Concert Band is the major instrumental ensemble at OPSU and performs traditional and contemporary band and wind ensemble music for at least two concerts every semester. Members should be prepared to attend all scheduled rehearsals and concerts and maintain their ability to play their instrument at the highest possible level. Members will be required to purchase appropriate concert dress. All students and community members are welcome, but two or more years of experience playing a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument is necessary. OPSU is able to provide some instruments to students enrolled in the course, but students are encouraged to purchase their own brass or woodwind instruments if possible. The Concert Band represents OPSU at Commencement in the May, and members enrolled during Spring Semester should plan their travel schedules accordingly.
