The University of Rochester Wind Symphony is comprised of students, faculty, staff, and community members who are serious and accomplished musicians, but whose life course may vary from music to medicine, business, engineering or linguistics. Conducted by Mr. William Tiberio, the ensemble studies and performs standard and contemporary wind music as well as transcriptions from other genres. Recent repertoire has included such renowned composers as Grainger, Chance, Tull, Tichelli, Vaughan Williams, Hanson, Hindemith, Ives, and Sousa. In addition to regular on-campus performances, the University Wind Symphony undertakes frequent performing tours.
The ensemble rehearses Monday nights from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Strong Auditorium.
