Conducted by Professor Russel Mikkelson, the Ohio State University Wind Symphony is widely recognised as one of the country’s elite wind bands. This ensemble comprises the finest woodwind, brass, and percussion musicians in the OSU School of Music. Committed to the creation of new music for winds, this ensemble has commissioned new music by William Bolcom, Aaron Jay Kernis, Robert Beaser, Steven Mackey, Frank Ticheli, Steven Bryant, David Maslanka, John Stevens, John Mackey, Carter Pann, Dana Wilson, James Stephenson and many other distinguished composers. Visitors have included such notable musicians as John Corigliano, Joseph Schwantner, Lukas Foss, Krzysztof Penderecki, Jennifer Higdon, Gunther Schuller, Augusta Read Thomas, Michael Daugherty, Jonathan Newman, and Percy Grainger biographer John Bird. Graduates of the Wind Symphony hold positions as professional orchestral musicians, soloists, conductors, members of the Washington-based military bands, university professors, and some of the world’s leading music educators. Since 1998 the Wind Symphony has performed at the 2003 and 2015 College Band Directors National Association Conventions, the 2014 CBDNA North Central Conference, the 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2013 Ohio Music Educators Association Conventions, and has made six recordings: Network (Naxos 2016), Rest (Naxos 2012), Southern Harmony (Naxos 2009), Winds of Nagual (Naxos, 2007), Jubilare!
