For Regionals, our Wind Ensemble is now playing Hounds of Spring by ALfred Reed instead of Satiric Dances by Norman Dello Joio, but we're still playing Vesuvius by Frank Ticheli.

At the beginning of the semester we play a bunch of songs and then after a while you can tell which songs we're going to preform because we play them more often and our director gets pickier. But if he can tell we're getting tired of the same old thing we'll spend a day playing the fun, fresher stuff. After our spring concert we just play around too since we usually have about a week of regular school and finals week until school is let out.
