The WVU Bands program currently features four concert ensembles - the Wind Symphony, the Symphonic Band, and two Concert Bands. These ensembles present concerts for the campus community throughout the year and represent the School of Music in regional and national appearances. Recent performances by the Wind Symphony include concerts in New York City's Carnegie Hall and Symphony Hall in Chicago.
All of these ensembles are open to any WVU student regardless of major. Auditions are required for membership in both the Wind Symphony and the Symphonic Band. No audition is required for membership in the Concert Bands, which are only offered spring semester.
Directed by Dr. Scott C. Tobias, this ensemble is comprised of approximately 50 of the finest wind and percussion students at WVU.Read More
