Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.

The Texas Panhandle's only private college preparatory school for students in grades 6 through 12
The Wind Ensemble is a vibrant part of life at Ascension. Special Assemblies, Christmas Concerts, Pep Rallies, Spring Trips, and Fine Arts Night are some of the events that our Band Students enjoy at our school.
There are two levels of Bands in the Wind Ensemble program at Ascension Academy. Winds I is for beginner and early intermediate players. Instrument options are flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and Euphonium. Other instruments such as oboe, bassoon and french horn are welcome but require private lesson instruction as a supplement to classroom instruction. Percussion is not offered in Winds I.
Winds II is by audition only and is offered to more advanced players. Private lessons are highly recommended and are offered by professional players during class time. Percussion is open to students with previous and continuous private lesson experience.
