Symphonic Winds

The Xavier University Symphonic Winds is an auditioned ensemble dedicated to the excellent performance of quality traditional and contemporary literature, including original works for wind band as well as outstanding orchestral transcriptions. This is the premier wind ensemble at Xavier University. In rehearsal and performance, the aesthetic aspect of the music is stressed and special emphasis is placed on musical style. The group maintains an active performance schedule in the Cincinnati area, but the Symphonic Winds also represent the Department of Music throughout Ohio and the surrounding states.

Membership is open to all university students; the ensemble represents virtually every department across campus.
