UCLA Wind Ensemble Concert
Wed 11/29/2023 • 8PM PST
Join the UCLA Wind Ensemble for the second concert of their 2023-2024 season with a performance led by Visiting Professor of Music Gary Hill. The UCLA Wind Ensemble is the premier wind band at the University of California, Los Angeles. Comprising both graduate and undergraduate students, its 50 members are highly skilled and versatile musicians selected by competitive audition each fall.
As a flexible and inclusive medium that honors its rich history while also fostering living composers, the wind ensemble provides an ideal laboratory for students to encounter a wide range of musical viewpoints. Innovative programming, interaction with faculty and guest artists, and vibrant outreach programs position the wind ensemble as a musical nexus, bringing together professional players and artist-teachers, composers, academics, school band directors, and audiences — with student-musicians at the core.
