Symphonic Wind

The MVSU music program has two large wind ensembles: Symphonic Band and Concert Band.
The Marching Band is divided into two groups; the first unit being identified as the Symphonic Bandand second unit as the Concert Band. Members of both groups are selected by the band director. The Symphonic Band plays the more complex literature and performs on and off campus according to the approved activity performance schedule. The Concert Band plays literature that is technically less difficult and serves as a laboratory-training group for music majors. If there is a shortage of personnel, Symphonic Band members will serve in both capacities.
