Wind Ensemble

The Wind Ensemble provides opportunities for all wind and percussion players. Our repertoire includes transcriptions of orchestral works, concerti, symphonic band works and new music for the wind band. The Wind Ensemble regularly features student and faculty solo artists, and has given numerous Canadian and world premieres of works. We perform two concerts during the first semester, and three to four concerts during the second semester.


Admission to the Wind Ensemble is by audition. Musicians should book a time with Professor Brent Ghiglione during the first week of classes. The audition will consist of an excerpt of a solo or study, or an excerpt of some band music.


Wind Ensemble rehearses on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. - 6:50 p.m. in RC 175.


Please direct questions to Professor Brent Ghiglione, the Director of Bands.
