Community Symphonic Band
EOU Community Symphonic Band
The EOU Wind Ensemble has recently combined forces with community members to form the EOU Community Symphonic Band. The music faculty would like to encourage any student with experience on flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, French horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, or orchestral percussion to join and participate in this exciting new ensemble.
The Community Symphonic Band, which is primarily a concert band, performs all styles and genres of symphonic concert band repertoire from traditional band standards, to movie and film music, to chamber music, to arrangements of contemporary music. The group will start a tradition of touring at least once a year in 2006, in conjunction with the jazz ensemble. The ensemble repertoire is based on the instrumentation, interests and ability levels of the student performers, which varies from term to term. The ensemble meets Tuesdays and Thursdays of fall and winter terms for one general education credit.
