Recognised internationally as a premiere university wind ensemble, the Bob Cole Conservatory Wind Symphony continues to expand the school’s rich tradition of performance excellence. Composed of the finest wind and percussion performers within the Department of Music, its mission is to stimulate musical growth and provide advanced performance opportunities for the department’s instrumental music students. Performance goals encompass the identification, performance, and appreciation of the best of wind and percussion literature.
The Wind Symphony and its members bring the highest quality wind literature to a professional level of performance, thus engaging the listening audience. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as “…thoroughly disciplined and euphonious!” Based on a foundation of traditional wind repertoire, the ensemble performs both standard and contemporary wind literature. Long a champion of music commissioning projects and contemporary repertoire, the Wind Symphony has premiered over twenty new works in recent times.
This performance is part of our Lunchtime Concert Series.
