About the Concert Bands

Wind Ensemble Members

There's a place for everyone in the Nevada Wind Ensemble and Concert Winds! The groups are comprised of music majors, music minors, and students from every major across campus. Regardless of your major, we have a place for you to make music in a concert band setting. 

The Nevada Wind Ensemble (MUSE 114/414/614)

The nationally recognized Nevada Wind Ensemble is the flagship wind and percussion ensemble at the University. Using one-per-part instrumentation, the Wind Ensemble performs a broad repertoire of classic and contemporary styles, ranging from large band works to chamber pieces. The ensemble tours regularly throughout the Western US, and provides the opportunity to collaborate with world-class guest conductors and guest artists. The group consists of graduate and undergraduate students, and is open to music majors and non-majors by audition. Rehearsals are on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00 am - 12:20 pm, fall and spring semesters.
