The Georgia Southern Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony are concert bands with membership limited to 50-55 of the most accomplished woodwind, brass and percussion performers on the Statesboro Campus. The musicians perform repertoire of the highest caliber, representing all musical style periods from the Renaissance through modern day, and featuring works created by composers for the historical and modern wind band.
“We’re looking forward to getting to know the concert-going, wind band loving, public of Savannah and the surrounding area,” said Director of Bands Robert Dunham, DMA. “I am truly privileged to work with these fine, talented and dedicated musicians every week, and to be able to share with them regularly in music making of the highest caliber. They inspire and challenge me. And I learn every bit as much from them as I hope they learn from me.”
