Wind Symphony

The Liberty University Wind Symphony is an auditioned instrumental ensemble for students who are advanced players of woodwind, brass and percussion. Repertoire includes original and transcribed advanced wind symphony works from all eras. The Wind Symphony travels on an extensive spring tour annually, where they perform multiple concerts at a variety of prestigious venues, plus the ensemble enjoys recording sessions and additional concerts on campus each semester. 

The Wind Ensemble has had the exciting opportunity of being invited to perform at the College Band Director's National Association Conference (CBDNA) multiple times.  Their most recent CBDNA performance was at the February 2016 Southern Division Conference in Charleston, SC.  At the 2016 CBDNA Conference, the Wind Sympony had the joy and pleasure of meeting John Mackey and performing one of his latest works entitled Wine Dark Sea - Symphony for Band, which tells the story of Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey, through three distinct musical movements.  Pictured below are a number of our members with John Mackey after the celebratory performance.
