The premiere concert band at Southwest, the Wind Ensemble strives to perform pieces ranging from masterworks in the tradition canon of repertoire to fresh new works written for winds and percussion. For two concerts, members of the Wind Ensemble team up with the Chamber Orchestra to form the Southwest Symphony Orchestra. Each spring, Wind Ensemble participates in the MSHSL Large Group Contest Band Festival and tours domestically.
This ensemble is directed by Reid Wixson.
