Wind Symphony

Lorrie Crochet, conductor 


The Wind Symphony was formed in 2005 and consists of the finest wind and percussion players at Winthrop University. This ensemble has a strong tradition for its performance of significant repertoire written for wind band. In addition, the Symphonic Band fosters an appreciation for a variety of musical styles within the wind band repertoire and seeks to enhance the development of individual performance in the areas of intonation, articulation, technical facility, and balance and blend within an ensemble. The ensemble meets on Monday and Wednesday afternoons in both the winter and spring terms. Membership is determined by audition with the director and the applied teacher early in the school year. The group performs several concerts each year, including the annual Concert on the Lawn, and tours every two years, performing throughout the Carolinas for premier high school programs.
