1 Credit
Frederick Lowe, Conductor

Wind Ensemble is comprised of 50-60 members, and provides an opportunity for students from a variety of majors and playing levels to perform in a college band. Performing two concerts per semester, Wind Ensemble plays works such as traditional transcriptions & marches (Wagner & Rossini); concert band classics (Holst & Grainger); contemporary works for winds (Mackey & Colgrass); and works for chamber ensembles (Gounod, Gabrieli, & Strauss). Conducted by Dr. Frederick Lowe, Wind Ensemble is a one-credit course that counts toward the Artistic Knowledge and Experience requirement of the Core Curriculum, and also fulfills the Public Performance component of the Engaged Learning requirement.
