About the Ensemble
In 1983, a group of Rutgers University Alumni who wanted an avenue to
continue performing in a symphonic band formed the Rutgers University
Alumni Wind Symphony.
With support from the Rutgers University Band Alumni Association, the
ensemble has been performing concerts for two decades. Although the
membership has varied with time, this organization of volunteers
continues to provide a performance outlet for these dedicated
musicians. Originally composed of Rutgers graduates, the ensemble has
acquired a significant number of musicians from the community.
The need for specific instruments varies by season, but we are always
interested in new members. Please email our Musical Director, Nanette
O'Neal at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss available openings within our
We rehearse during the fall and spring semesters, with a winter
concert in December and a spring concert in May, at Nicholas Music
Center on the Rutgers Douglass Campus.
We also hold an outdoor performance at the Mary Sheridan Park in
Lambertville, NJ the first Saturday in June. Following the concert,
band members enjoy a delicious end-of-year picnic to celebrate yet
another fun and successful season.
