Columbia University Wind Ensemble
Columbia University Wind Ensemble has grown to a full wind ensemble of almost sixty brass, woodwind, and percussion musicians. The ensemble has also begun commissioning pieces, including Michael DiGiacinto?s Soundscape (2006) and Erik Jorgen Jorgensen's Chaconne (2007). They also had the honor of the NYC premiere of Frank Ticheli's Nitro in March 2007. The ensemble has played at Merkin Hall, St. Paul's Chapel, Miller Theatre, Philosophy Hall, Roone Arledge Auditorium, and Yale's Woolsey Hall, and performed in joint concerts with other University ensembles such as the Yale Concert Band, MIT Concert Band, the Queens College Wind Ensemble, the Harvard Wind Ensemble, and plans to collaborate with the Dartmouth Wind Symphony in spring 2008.
