Comprised of approximately 50 of our finest undergraduate and graduate brass, woodwind, and percussion students, the Eastern Illinois Wind Symphony is the premiere ensemble of the Eastern Illinois University band program.  This ensemble performs significant literature for winds that is drawn from the major masterworks of the repertoire for the modern Wind Band, including chamber literature.  The Wind Symphony is also actively involved in the commissioning of new works for wind band as well as exploring new approaches to programming/performing.  The Eastern Illinois Wind Symphony rehearses approx. 4 hours per week and performs a minimum of two concerts per semester.
