Willis Ensemble Banner

The Willis Music Ensemble- Without our people, it would be like watching a performance of empty chairs play. 

A little bit about our ensemble of people:

Most of us are music makers and some of us aren’t. While we all have our own hobbies and interests we all share the passion of enriching lives by encouraging music participation! In fact, that is part of our mission statement. We are a team made up of band geeks, adventure seekers, animal lovers, comic book enthusiasts, and much more but, we all share one common passion and that is music education.
