Utah Wind Symphony
Utah's Premiere Wind Ensemble
The Utah Wind Symphony is unlike any other group currently performing in Utah. This premiere ensemble is a wind and percussion band, reflecting the tradition of wind bands in America. Originally organized by a University of Utah graduate student and a local high school band director, the UWS now includes a talented mix of professional freelance musicians, music educators, and faculty from three of Utah's universities. Also represented in this organization are the nation's finest music institutions, with participating alumni from Julliard and the Manhattan School of Music, as well as graduates from BYU, the University of Utah, Utah State, and Weber State University. The product of this confluence of musical talent promises to result in an ensemble unlike anything else currently happening in Utah. The Utah Wind Symphony recently performed at the 2014 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois.
