The Liberty University Wind Symphony, Liberty’s premier wind band, is a select instrumental ensemble comprised entirely of musically advanced residential students. Repertoire includes original and transcribed exceptional wind symphony works from all eras, including exploration of new sounds and rhythms by contemporary composers. Directed by Dr. Stephen Kerr, this fabulous ensemble has enjoyed critical acclaim from audiences, composers, and peer review. Each year, the Wind Symphony records an album, performs at least 8 times on campus, and travels on an extensive spring tour, where they perform multiple concerts at a variety of prestigious venues, including multiple performances at the CBDNA Southern Division Conferences. The Wind Symphony is proud to perform advanced works from the finest composers writing for wind bands, including John Mackey, Steven Bryant, Philip Sparke, David Maslanka, Mason Bates, and many others. In addition, the Wind Symphony regularly participates in commissions of new works for wind band.
