Join the Wind Symphony and our guest conductor, Professor Emeritus of Music Michael Haithcock at the University of Michigan, as we close our academic year with selections from Michael Daugherty, Shuying Li, Samuel Adler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Benjamin Horne and Dimitri Shostakovich.

The Wind Symphony comprises the College of Music's most outstanding wind, brass and percussion students. Founded in 1978, the group is committed to performing the finest wind repertoire, regardless of era or ensemble size—ranging from recently performed works by Ida Gotkovsky and the college's own Carter Pann to additional diverse works by Carlos Simon, Omar Thomas, Joan Tower and Xi Wang. The Wind Symphony also values the importance of collaboration by working with various faculty and guest artists. Performances on campus and across Colorado, as well as at conferences and abroad, have earned the ensemble international acclaim.

From orchestras, bands and choirs to jazz, world music and opera to world-class faculty and guest performances, the CU Boulder College of Music brings hundreds of stunning performances to Boulder audiences throughout the academic year.
