The UWEC Wind Symphony includes approximately 60 undergraduate student musicians who perform as a full wind symphony and also as smaller chamber wind groups.  The Wind Symphony is comprised of the most outstanding wind and percussion majors in the Department of Music and Theatre Arts and gifted non-music majors who are selected by audition each semester.  The group is dedicated to the performance of the finest wind repertoire, regardless of period or number of instrumental forces.  Flexible instrumentation and player rotation provide members of the ensemble with a variety of responsibilities, challenges, and playing experiences.  The ensemble provides members the opportunity to broaden performance and teaching skills by experiencing repertoire at the highest level.

The Wind Symphony has performed at many regional, national, and international conferences including: Music Educators National Conference, College Band Directors National Association, Wisconsin State Music Conference, Illinois Music Educators Association Convention, National Band Association - Wisconsin Chapter Convention, and the International Tuba Euphonium Conference.  The Wind Symphony frequently records for music publishers including Daehn Publications and JPM Music.

 The UWEC Symphony Band, an ensemble comprised of music majors and talented non-music majors, is committed to the study and performance of the finest standard and contemporary works for band. This ensemble is open to university students by audition and performs four concerts a year with a concert tour each spring.
