Hopkins Youth Wind Orchestra

The Hopkins Youth Wind Orchestra is a band for students that play woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. We will be challenged through great music, continue to play our instrument through the summer, and have fun with fantastic instructors. Our summer experience will culminate in public performances around the Hopkins community. Band students in grades 8-12 (as of the 17-18 school year) are encouraged to apply. No audition required. Scholarships are available on a limited basis by contacting Community Education.
