The Symphonic Band has the distinction of being the band program's top symphonic ensemble. Its select mission is to provide instrumentalists with an opportunity to demonstrate and develop the techniques of musical instincts appropriate to a symphonic setting. With an emphasis on the distinctive characteristics of the large wind and percussion ensemble, the Symphonic Band's repertoire is culled from the rich resources of the wind band tradition. An important goal of the Symphonic Band is to develop and nurture in its members the fundamental skills necessary to perform repertoire of the highest caliber.
