Bronze represents a basic wind ensemble with 2 flutes, 3 clarinets, Alto and Tenor Sax’s, 2 trumpets,, horns and trombones, euphonium, tuba and percussion. In addition there are non essential parts. The Silver Series includes more fuller orchestration with more essential parts and of course the Gold Series a for full Symphonic Wind ensemble.
