performs only the best repertoire available, both old and new.

Composers of compositions performed include Maslanka, Holst,

Grantham, Ticheli, Colgrass, Stravinsky, Moncayo, Nelson, Benson,

and Copland. This highly select ensemble has been involved in the

commissioning of numerous new works and has a number of world

premieres to its credit. Participation in the Wind Ensemble is

obtained through a successful audition which will be held at the

beginning of each semester. Wind Ensemble is open to music

majors and qualified non-majors.

fosters the highest performance standards while offering its

members an opportunity to expand their technical, intellectual,

majors, the Symphonic Band is open to all university students by

comprehensive auditions at the beginning of each semester. Two

performances are scheduled each semester providing students

with a diverse repertoire that is performed with great attention to

musical and artistic detail. Recent performances by the Symphonic

Band have included masterworks by Holst, Grainger, Shostakovich,

Bach, Schuman and Persichetti, and well a newer gems by Bryant,

Ticheli, Maslanka, Grantham, and Mackey.

CONCERT BAND

Concert Band is now being offered as a Fall Class. This is a nonauditioned

ensemble that is designed for USF students of any and

all majors who played in high school and wish to continue playing

in an indoor ensemble setting. While HOT Band members are

encouraged to join, we are also seeking students who are not

marching to participate. Please share this information with friends
