Concert Bands

The band program at CSUN is dedicated to the promotion of concert band music by performing the finest of literature and bringing this music to the peoples of California. Each year the CSUN Wind Ensemble performs throughout southern California, presenting concerts of the finest of band music at diverse venues — public schools, state historic parks, cultural landmarks, resort destinations, and residential communities. Through generous support provided by the CSUN Associated Students, the Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony embark on unique concert series each year — “Band on the Run” concerts are free outreach performances designed specifically for presentation to the public throughout the greater Los Angeles region; the “Gaudeamus Igitur” concerts are performances designed specifically to bring live music to segments of the CSUN student population (and other Los Angeles college students) who otherwise have limited experiences with band music.
