Notes & Reviews:

All of these pieces are by American composers, and all are premiere recordings! Under the direction of Dr. Ambrose, the Georgia State University Symphonic Wind Ensemble is quickly gaining recognition as one of the finest wind bands in the region. Their recent performances have been met with critical acclaim for musical artistry and innovative programming. The Symphonic Wind Ensemble is comprised of the finest woodwind, brass, and percussion players in the School of Music, who are selected each semester by audition. The ensemble's repertoire is drawn from significant literature written for wind ensemble, symphonic band, and chamber winds.
