EMORY SYMPHONIC WINDS
The Department of Music is home to the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and an active chamber music program, plus the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony and Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra. These ensembles provide a positive, high quality, educational experience with the intent of cultivating a lifelong relationship with music in post-college life. The Emory Wind Ensemble and Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony have developed a national reputation as leaders in the commissioning of new music, having collaborated with Jennifer Higdon, Bruce Broughton, Libby Larsen, Stephen Paulus, Steven Bryant, Roger Cichy, Eric Ewazen, John Mackey, Jonathan Newman, Todd Stalter, Carolyn Bremer, William Pitts, and Jonathan Hoffmann, among others. The Emory Symphonic Winds represent a cross-section of the Emory Wind Ensemble and Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony, as well as alumni from both groups and a number of musicians from Atlanta—a true community ensemble.
