WSU has two concert bands available to students: the Wind Ensemble and the Symphonic Band. These ensembles include more than 100 undergraduate and graduate music and non-music majors. While the bands require a placement audition for seating, our goal is one of inclusion – we want to accommodate all non-music majors who desire to continue their instrumental music experience in a university setting. To this end, we will accommodate non-music major students with scheduling issues on a limited basis.

The bands perform both standard and contemporary repertoire. We have performed everywhere, from national and regional conferences to New York's prestigious Carnegie Hall.
