Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble

Bg_c


The Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble is designed to have a single performer on each instrumental part, emulating the orchestral wind section. This helps musicians develop an orchestral tone color, maximizes personal responsibility, and encourages a chamber music style of playing even in a large ensemble setting. The Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble has the advantage of utilizing flexible instrumentations that allow it to perform a wide variety of wind ensemble repertoire.
