The Western University Symphonic Band has a long-standing history of musical achievement.  It was the first large instrumental ensemble at the university over 50 years ago. The ensemble’s goals are to explore quality music written for the wind band, and to perform it with mastery. Typical repertoire consists of music written in a variety of styles, including transcriptions, the core standard band repertoire, and some of the best new pieces for the genre.

Comprised of approximately 60+ musicians, the WUSB, is open to music majors and non-music majors by audition. Auditions take place immediately before classes begin in the fall. The Symphonic Band performs four concerts per year on the university campus in the Paul Davenport Theatre.
