UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI FROST WIND ENSEMBLE
The Frost Wind Ensemble at the University of Miami consists of the finest wind and percussion players at the university, and performs for numerous concerts,
conferences, and festivals throughout the season. Actively commissioning new music for the repertoire, the ensemble has offered world premières for such composers as Charles Campbell, Clarke McCallister, Michael Colgrass, James Syler, David Maslanka, and Christopher Rouse. One of the guiding principles of the Frost Wind Ensemble is contact with leading musical minds of this time, resulting in recent residencies by such notable musicians as James Syler, Eric Whitacre, Michael Daugherty, David Maslanka, and John Corigliano. The Frost Wind Ensemble has released five compact discs on both the Albany and Naxos label. Former members of the Frost Wind Ensemble at the University of Miami hold positions in many symphony orchestras and military bands, and serve as teachers and conductors throughout the United States and the world.
