Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony

The Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony are among the many instrumental music offerings available at Mt. San Antonio College. Both ensembles specialize in performing high quality repertoire for winds and percussion. Members of the ensemble give formal performances each semester, travel on concert tours, and host festivals throughout the year. Over the last decade the program has nearly tripled in size and has evolved into a dynamic and expressive organization, known for its musical excellence.  

In 2005, the Wind Ensemble took part in the New York Wind Band Festival, which included a performance at Carnegie Hall. In 2006, the Wind Ensemble performed at the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA) Western/Northwestern conference in Reno, Nevada. 2007 featured a performance in the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as a part of the Washington D.C. Wind Band Festival. More recently, the ensemble was featured at the Walt Disney Concert Hall during the Los Angeles International Band and Orchestra Festival in June, 2008. To help further the cause of new music, the Mt. SAC Instrumental Music Program has taken part in the commissioning of new works including  Blue  by Ran Galor,Journey’s End  by Steven Mahpar,  Phantasticke Spirites  by Donald Grantham,  Voice of the City  by Richard Danielpour,  Pandemonium  by Roger Cichy,  Streets of Paris  by Bill Reichenbach, and  Vintage Renaissance and Beyond  and  Concerto for Timpani and Wind Ensemble  by William Kraft.
