Welcome to the Kenyon College Symphonic Wind Ensemble Website!
The Kenyon College Symphonic Wind Ensemble is dedicated to playing wind ensemble music of the highest caliber within a collaborative, non-competitive environment. It seeks to develop member creativity, leadership ability, and collaborative skills.
The ensemble performs music from the traditional band repertoire as well as one-on-a-part works for chamber winds. The group's performed repertoire list comprises music composed from the Renaissance through the 1990s. In order to facilitate the development of leadership and group collaborative skills, part assignments within sections (e.g. 1st, 2nd, 3rd clarinet) are rotated, so that all students have opportunities to lead as well as follow.
Symphonic Wind Ensemble is a graded course, worth .25 credit, which may be applied to satisfy the College's fine arts distribution requirement.
The Symphonic Wind Ensemble rehearses each Thursday evening, from 7:10 until 10:00. The first two hours are devoted to full ensemble work, while the remaining time is employed for sectionals and chamber wind repertoire rehearsal.
