Symphonic Winds
  • The Symphonic Winds, under the direction of Jeffrey D. Gershman is the premier wind band in the Conservatory of Music. The ensemble performs six campus concerts per year with programs that draw from the cornerstones of the wind literature, the finest contemporary works, and the rich and varied repertoire composed for chamber winds. The ensemble frequently hosts nationally recognized guest soloists, guest composers, and guest conductors and its recording featuring the Boston Brass, Heroes and Legends, is available nationally through Summit Records.


    In addition to their campus concerts, the Symphonic Winds tour both regionally and nationally and have earned frequent invitations to perform at professional conferences. Recent appearances have included concerts at a College Band Directors National Association Regional Conference, the Ohio Music Educators Association State Convention, and a week-long tour of Taiwan.
