The Wind Symphony

The finest woodwind, brass and percussion players at Brigham Young University perform with the Wind Symphony, under the direction of Donald Peterson. The BYU Wind Symphony maintains an active performance schedule with programming that ranges from wind band classics to some of the newest wind repertoire.  Participation in commissioning consortiums and hosting composers on campus avails ensemble members with opportunities to experience these new works in meaningful ways.

In addition to on-campus concerts, the ensemble has been honored with performances for:

  • Music Educators National Conference, National Convention
  • College Band Directors Association, National and Division Conventions
  • American Bandmasters Association. National Conference

As Brigham Young University’s premier wind band, the ensemble has been presented in many of the United States, and in twenty foreign countries—including, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and many European countries.  Most recently the band completed another tour to Australia in May of 2018.(Check out the highlights) and a tour of Texas in May of 2019. Currently they are preparing for a tour to Austria, Italy, and the Czech Republic.
