Symphonic Winds

Membership in the Symphonic Winds is achieved through an audition and is open to all students of the university, although about half of the membership is music majors. Comprised of the most accomplished instrumental musicians on campus, the Symphonic Winds maintains a strong commitment to performing quality wind band works of high artistic merit. The band is equally at ease whether performing in a school assembly program, a Sunday morning worship service, or a formal evening concert. Recent tours have taken the band to schools and churches in Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, Arizona, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Louisiana, Tennessee and Arkansas. Symphonic Winds is under the direction of James Vernon, Professor of Music and Interim Director of Instrumental Activities.
