Preparatory Winds Preparatory Winds (PW) is an orchestral winds, brass and percussion section where students work on orchestral style music in preparation for BYSO’s full orchestras.
Directed by Janet Underhill, PW focuses on blend, articulation and introduces students to standard orchestral doublings and skill sets needed as a successful musician. Students in PW are exposed to standard transpositions and clef usage typical to their instrument in orchestral literature. PW performed in a variety of venues including Tsai Performance Center at Boston University, Granoff Music Center at Tufts, Roxbury Community College and Sanders Theatre at Harvard University.
