A select concert band designed for in-depth study of major literature for winds and percussion. The Wind Symphony exclusively performs literature deemed of the highest quality from the repertory of both traditional and contemporary compositional styles. As a student-member, you will develop a deeper sensitivity not only toward outstanding musicianship, but with regard to historical style, performance practices, and aesthetics. Particular emphasis on pedagogy is placed in rehearsals making this a valuable learning experience for performance and education majors alike. In addition to high expectations as an instrumentalist, your ability to apply intellect and spirit in meaningful ways during rehearsals and concerts is also demanded. Membership in the Wind Symphony is open to any student who qualifies through audition.
