UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS WIND ENSEMBLE

Described by the New York Times as “one of America’s most esteemed concert bands,” the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble is the premier wind band at the University of Kansas and is conducted by Dr Paul W. Popiel, Director of Bands. Their Carnegie Hall début in 2013 was described by Feast of Music as “showing amazing chops in their transitions and an impressive range of dynamics” and by the New York Times as performing “with polish, assurance and copious spirit, eliciting a rousing ovation.” The University of Kansas Wind Ensemble enjoys a long history of excellence and musical leadership in the state of Kansas, across the nation, and around the world. The ensemble has performed at every major wind band and music education convention in the country, and performed with musicians such as Aaron Copland, Vincent Persichetti, Percy Grainger, Karel Husa, Michael Colgrass, and Frank Ticheli. The KU Wind Ensemble is at the forefront of the Naxos Wind Band Classics series, having made four previous recordings: Redline Tango [8.570074], Wild Nights! [8.572129], Derivations [8.572629] and Landscapes [8.573104]. The ensemble is committed to contemporary music and regularly commissions, premières, and records new works. The group is also dedicated to the preservation of major works from the standard repertoire.
