For the past few months. the MIHS Wind Ensemble has been collaborating with the award winning England-based composer and creator of the YouTube channel "Listening In", Barnaby Martin. This video is the incredible culmination of this experience; explaining the origins of the project, showing what the collaboration looks like, speaks to what it means to be a musician in 2021, and the unveiling of an original piece he created just for our Mercer Island Wind Ensemble, "Circles and Paths".

We couldn't have participated in this incredible collaborative effort without the support of the Mercer Island Schools Foundation and the Mercer Island Schools Band Boosters. Thank you!
