The Wind Studies program involves over 400 undergraduate and graduate music majors and offers performance opportunities for majors and non-majors, in eight ensembles including the Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Concert Bands, Brass Bands, and Athletic Bands.
The graduate conducting program in the Wind Studies Area offers degrees at both the Masters and Doctoral level. The goal of the program is to develop conductors for professional careers in performance and education through intensive study of literature and pedagogy. The rigorous and varied curriculum prepares well-rounded conductors for successful professional careers.
Graduate Conducting Associates receive practical experience working regularly with the various ensembles, appearing regularly on concert programs throughout the year. Additionally, conducting associates are integrally involved in the administration of the department as well as the summer Conductor’s Collegium, a multifaceted workshop which provide opportunities for instrumental music educators of all levels from around the world to meet and discuss common goals, shared concerns, and practical solutions with colleagues, performers and composers.
