The UMBC Wind Ensemble is a large chamber group of approximately 40 musicians that perform great wind repertoire from octets to larger masterworks. In contrast to a symphonic band, the UMBC Wind Ensemble typically plays with only one person on each part. Past years have included performances with internationally celebrated guest artists including Glee pianist and music director Brad Ellis, Canadian Brass veteran Joe Burgstaller, international tuba artist Oystein Baadsvik, Marine Band co-principal oboe Trevor Mowry, and UMBC professor of violin Airi Yoshioka. The ensemble seeks to regularly perform music by living composers; recent highlights include world premieres by Glee pianist and music director Brad Ellis, UMBC composition faculty Anna Rubin, and UMBC student composer Sam Winnie.
