The Duke University Wind Symphony, directed by Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant, is composed largely of non-majors (both undergraduate and graduate) who wish to challenge themselves by performing the finest wind and percussion literature at a high level of artistry.
The Wind Symphony gives at least four formal concerts each year, exploring musical styles from the Medieval Period to the 21st Century. Programs feature chamber works and pieces that employ the lush sonorities of the large symphonic ensemble. Compositions by such composers as Susato, Bach, Mozart, Holst, Grainger, Sousa, Ives, Gershwin, Hindemith, and those writing for the medium today are performed.
The 43rd Annual Viennese Ball will be held in Spring 2017-- date TBA
