STAHS Ensembles

TA Senior Band

The TA Symphonic Winds and Percussion is the senior ensemble which consists of students in Grades 9-12. We have a consistent membership of approximately 35-40 students but we are always glad to have members of the community come and participate for the love of music. The senior group also forms smaller ensembles, such as, the Saxophone Quartet, Clarinet Choir, Brass Choir and the RnB/Jazz Combo, for special events and or concerts. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school year from 3:30-4:30 p.m. The students who enroll in AMR 1O, AMR 2O, AMR 3O, AMR 4O, AMI4 or AMU4M can gain a credit for their time and effort in the band program. Most students graduate from the intermediate winds straight into SWP but students may audition if they were not in the junior or intermediate winds and wish to participate in the senior group.

Intermediate Winds (Gr.7/8) Beginners and One Year of Playing Experience

The TA Intermediate Winds is the Grade 7/8 ensemble. Students who were in the Junior Winds in Grade 5/6, traditionally gradate to the Intermediate Winds the following year. This is a crucial step for most students to be able to play in the senior ensembles. This group rehearses on Mondays from 3:30-4:30 p.m. and 11:30 -12:30 throughout the year. (Conductor - E. Harty)

Junior Winds (Gr. 5/6) Beginning Musicians

The TA Junior Winds is the grade 5/6 ensemble. Students who have never played an instrument are invited to come and join this exciting group from our 3 elementary schools in our board. Students will learn all of the fundamentals of their instrument and learn to play as a group. This group usually begins in October and rehearses on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30 p.m. throughout the year. (Conductor - E. Harty)

TAmbre (Gr. 7-12) Vocal Ensemble

Our vocal ensemble is from grade 7 to 12 and consists of voices from Bass to Soprano. The group rehearses on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:30 to 4:30. They traditionally travel to perform at Choralfest in Manitoba and in the past have been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
