Hilt to create new wind orchestra

By Jamie Kim

A curriculum change in the Music Department has dismantled the Concert Orchestra to create two separate Wind and String Ensembles.

Music directors Mark Hilt and Shawn Costantino said they made the change to balance sections within the Concert Orchestra.

Costantino will teach the Wind Ensemble and Hilt will teach the String Ensemble.

“[This] would be more efficient and [give] students a much more satisfying experience,” Hilt said.
