Swarthmore College Wind Ensemble
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. We perform a wide range of repertoire, from band classics to the newest compositions, and our programs often include arrangements of music from musicals and films as well. (Please read our full repertoire vision statement here.) The Wind Ensemble has taken 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. The Wind Ensemble is directed by Andrew Hauze '04.
