Dr. Rod Schueller

Director

The Fox Valley Youth Winds, conducted by Dr. Rod Schueller, performs as both a full wind symphony and also as smaller chamber wind groups. The FVYW is comprised of some of the most outstanding wind and percussion performers in the greater Fox Valley area who are selected by audition. The group is dedicated to the performance of the finest wind repertoire, regardless of period or disposition of instrumental forces. Using the player pool concept, the ensemble—consisting primarily of students in grades 9-12—performs music ranging from works requiring as few as eight players to personnel who form a full wind band. Flexible instrumentation and player rotation provide members of the ensemble with a variety of responsibilities, challenges, and performance experiences.
