About The Ensemble

The LSU Wind Ensemble is the premier concert organization of the LSU Department of Bands and LSU School of Music, comprised of the finest music major and non-major wind, brass, and percussion students at LSU.

Through the performance of a wide range of repertoire, the LSU Wind Ensemble provides plentiful opportunities for students to thoroughly develop and refine their individual musicianship. The ensemble enjoys a long history of collaborating with faculty soloists, composers, and guest artists from around the world, including a recent collaboration with GRAMMY-winning composer Michael Daugherty for a world premiere performance at the prestigious College Band Directors National Association Conference in 2019.

In addition to their regular series of on-campus concerts, the LSU Wind Ensemble regularly tours and performs at regional and national music conventions, serving as a flagship representative of the performing arts at LSU.

Auditions are open to all interested students. Membership in the LSU Wind Ensemble averages between 50 to 60 musicians each semester.
