The Symphonic Band serves an important role for the university in that it provides the general student body with the opportunity to continue their participation in a musical ensemble regardless of their major. Secondly, it provides the less experienced music majors the opportunity to build their musicianship and leadership skills.
Concerts feature a variety of music from marches and Broadway medleys to some of the finest serious music composed for this medium. This ensemble will typically give two concerts during the semester. Rehearsals are held on Monday nights from 6:30-8:30. The ensemble is under the direction of Mr. Doug Whitten, Associate Director of Bands and Director of Athletic Bands.
