Hoover High School Symphonic Winds
The Hoover High School Symphonic Winds is our premier concert ensemble. It is an auditioned ensemble that encompasses the highest achieving musicians in grades 9-12 at Hoover High School. The ensemble has performed at the Alabama Music Educators Association In-Service Conference in 2006. The Symphonic Winds have also performed as an invited guest ensemble at the University of Alabama Honor Band. In 2013 the ensemble received an invitation to perform a joint concert at the Alys Stevens Center with The University of Alabama at Birmingham Wind Ensemble. Additionally, the band has been named as an “Honor Group” at NAI and Grand NAI (National Adjudicators Invitational). Not only does the ensemble have a tradition of 16 consecutive years of superior ratings at state assessment, but also all three of our concert ensembles have a long-standing tradition of earning superior ratings at MPA annually.
