The Lawrence University Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Andrew Mast, is selected from the top wind and percussion students in the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music. Five to seven concerts are performed on and off campus throughout the academic year, frequently with guest soloists, conductors and composers. Their repertoire consists of the finest wind music from Bach to major contemporary composers and occasional works by talented Lawrence students. The ensemble has performed at regional and national conventions and has enjoyed a close association with many American composers. Several acclaimed recordings have been produced with the group, with the latest issued in winter 2013. The ensemble also received the prestigious invitation to perform at the College Band Directors National Association Conference in 2013. The Lawrence University Wind Ensemble is determined to bring its audiences the finest artistic repertoire from all musical periods, cultures and styles.
All large ensemble concerts performed in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel can be enjoyed around the world through our live, four camera video webcasts.
