Brown University Wind Symphony
Kevin Plouffe, Conductor
There is no musical institution more imbedded in American history than a concert band. With its strong sense of community and participatory consensus, the Brown University Wind Symphony reflects the unique ethos of the college itself. Students from very different concentrations—from Engineering to Egyptology—play, conduct, and compose new music for the band, making it one of the most diverse groups in the department.
The Wind Symphony rehearses twice a week on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Winds and brass players rehearse from 6:00-7:20pm on both days. The Percussion section rehearses only on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:20pm.
Auditions take place at the start of the semester. Bring a prepared piece that includes lyrical and technical passages to the audition.
Students may register for MUSC0620/0621 to receive academic credit for participation in Wind Symphony. (Enrollment is not required otherwise.)
