Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band
The Mt. San Antonio College Bands are comprised predominantly of music majors AND
non-majors by audition only. the Mt. San Antonio College Wind Ensemble performs wind
literature from across the wind repertoire at the highest artistic level.
With musical and artistic excellence as the foundation for our creative endeavors, students in the Mt. San Antonio College Bands spend time honing and applying their musical skills in weekly rehearsals, applied lessons with highly artistic and professional faculty, as well as in chamber ensembles. Performances of the Mt. San Antonio College Bands are held in the state-of-the-art Spohia B. Clarke Theater on the Mt. SAC Campus in Walnut, California.
The Mt. San Antonio College Wind Ensemble has performed throughout Southern California, the Southwestern United States, and in such significant concert venues as the Walt Disney Concert Hall (home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra), the Kennedy Center (Washington D.C.), Symphony Hall (Chicago, Illinois), and Carnegie Hall (New York City). The Mt. SAC Wind Ensemble has furthered new music for winds by commissioning and premiering new compositions from established and emerging composers, and hosts a yearly "Living Composer Series" in which the ensemble welcomes wind composers to work with the ensemble in residence at the Mt. San Antonio College Campus.
