Performing Arts | AU Symphonic Band

The AU Symphonic Band (PERF-147) is an ensemble for woodwind, brass, and percussion players that performs the highest quality wind repertoire. It's goal is to provide an opportunity for students with vastly different disciplines to interact socially and musically, nurture the highest level of musicianship, explore forms of human expression, and inspire a love of the arts.

AU undergraduate and graduate students, as well as community members and staff are welcome to join. Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 - 8:00 pm at the Katzen Arts Center. Auditions for seating take place during the first week of classes. Contact Ben Sonderman, director of the Symphonic Band, with questions about membership (
