Notes & Reviews:
Formed in 1956 by Willard Musser, the Crane Wind Ensemble comprises 58 of the most outstanding wind and percussion majors in The Crane School of Music. The CWE performs as a full wind band and also in smaller chamber groups with varied instrumentation. The ensemble is dedicated to the performance of the finest wind repertoire, regardless of period or disposition of instrumental forces. The CWE is also committed to performing music of our time, and is active in working with composers in the commissioning of new works to support this goal. Recent consortium and world premieres include works by Stephen Bryant, Joel Puckett, Dana Wilson, Kristin Kuster, Roshanne Etezady, David Heinick, James Mobberley, Christopher Theofanidis, Gregory Wanamaker, and André Previn. The CWE performs at least three performances each fall and spring, and also tours regularly. The Crane Wind Ensemble received invitations to perform at NYSBDA's 27th and 31st Annual Symposium and to perform at the New York State Music Educators Association (NYSSMA) Winter Conference in 2009.
