The Centenary Wind Ensemble
The Wind Ensemble is comprised of students from Centenary College, including both music majors and other majors.
The Wind Ensemble experience prepares instrumentalists and conductors for professional careers in performance and music education. The goal of instruction is to develop well-rounded musicians who are prepared to face the challenges of an ever-changing musical world, who are able to perceive and respond to the aesthetic qualities of music, and who can render convincing performances of music from a variety of stylistic periods and genres.
The Wind Ensemble provides other college students with an opportunity to continue their involvement in the performing arts and encourages those who do not plan careers in music to develop aesthetically as well as academically, to increase intellectual understanding of music and performance, and to inspire spirituality in music making.
Additionally, the program is directed toward maintaining a leadership role and serving as a resource and focal point for wind music in the community.
