WCMS has ensembles and bands to fit a wide range of ages, interests, and ability levels. Whether you simply like the idea of playing or singing with fellow musicians, want to practice in a supportive group, or are ready to take your music to the next level, we will help you find a group that fits.
Playing in an ensemble or band helps participants develop important instrumental and voice skills, such as ensemble cueing, group intonation, rhythmic interaction, and leadership and listening skills.
Participation in an ensemble also improves a student's ability to perform in solo recitals or large ensemble settings such as school bands, orchestras, and a cappella groups. No matter what your musical goals, please join us!
