Symphonic Band

University Wind Ensemble is open to students of all majors, including the finest woodwind, brass, and percussion students in the University's Department of Music. Primarily an undergraduate ensemble and the University's official ceremonial band, the University Wind Ensemble is guided by a philosophy which seeks to expose students and audiences to the highest quality of music written for wind instruments, spanning the works of the Renaissance masters to the most recent prize-winning composers. Through the rehearsal and performance of this diverse repertoire, students are exposed to a wide array of compositional techniques, rehearsal processes, and expressive possibilities.
