Swarthmore College Wind Ensemble

The Swarthmore College Wind Ensemble

Current students, please see our plan for Fall 2020.

New students, you can find information about auditioning for Wind Ensemble here.

The Swarthmore Wind Ensemble rehearses once a week for two-and-a-half hours in Lang Concert Hall, and performs a full concert at the end of each semester.  We are a Tri-College group, welcoming students from Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges who are interested in exploring the Concert Band repertoire in a collegiate setting.  The Wind Ensemble takes field trips to hear world-renowned bands (such as the President's Own Marine Band), and sometimes rehearses outdoors in the Scott Amphitheater.  Any member of the Tri-Co community who plays a band instrument is welcome to join.
