The WSU Concert Band is one of two concert bands at WSU. This ensemble includes both numerous music majors and non-music majors. The membership of the Concert Band includes graduate students and undergraduate students from every college, school, and department from across the campus. Numerous non-music majors participate in the Concert Band, thereby contributing to the musical success of the band.
While the Concert Band requires a placement audition for seating, the goal of the Concert Band is inclusive – that is to accommodate all non-music major students that desire to continue their instrumental music experience in a university setting. To this end, the Concert Band, with the permission of the Director of Bands, will accommodate non-music major students with scheduling issues on a limited basis.
The Concert Band performs both standard and contemporary repertoire. The Concert Band has achieved regional and state recognition with performances at the College Band Directors National Association Southwestern Division Conference (1996), and the Kansas Music Educators Association Professional Conferences (1999, 2001, 2003, 2005).
The Concert Band meets at the following times:
Mondays – 3:30pm – 4:50pm
Wednesdays – 3:30pm – 4:50pm
Fridays – 3:30pm – 4:30pm
