The Wind Orchestra (formerly Symphonic Band) has developed an exemplary national reputation for their performances and recordings. Membership is drawn from the finest musicians attending the College of Music. The highest quality contemporary music—mixed with traditional and standard literature—make up the foundation of repertoire performed by the group. The ensemble is dedicated to playing outstanding and challenging works of diverse musical styles while furthering wind music of artistic and historical significance. The Wind Orchestra has performed at the Southwest Regional College Band Directors National Association Convention and has released more than 15 CD recordings on the Mark, Klavier, GIA, and Eurosound labels. Critical comments include “Bravo…for a resplendent performance!”; “…played with great gusto by the ensemble”; “played with brilliance!”; “the elegant sonority of this marvelous band is apparent in the slow sections”; “The attention to detail, precise intonation, and beautiful phrasing make this a compelling performance”; “WOW! Absolutely stunning!”; “…what an incredible CD! An enormously valuable addition to the band world.”
