The El Camino Wind Orchestra (ECWO), conducted by Dr. Richard Roper, is a woodwind, brass, and percussion intermediate level ensemble composed of bright young middle and high school students from across the Bay Area. Musicians may progress in this ensemble for multiple years.
ECWO musicians experience a wide breadth of repertoire, ranging from classical transcriptions to modern works just a few years old.
Students are given thorough instruction in ensemble balance and intonation while experiencing a rigorous challenge of their technical skills. The ECWO serves as a training ensemble for some students, but it is also often a destination for musicians who prefer a wind orchestra program to a full orchestra.
The ECWO season runs September through May, and the musicians perform in three concerts during the year.
