The Symphonic Band is the premiere wind band of Cal State San Bernardino. With a goal of developing and refining individual and ensemble musicianship skills, the Symphonic Band is comprised of the finest wind and percussion students within the Department of Music as well as throughout the CSUSB campus. Membership is open to all majors, with a chair placement audition held at the beginning of the fall quarter and as vacancies arise. The CSUSB Symphonic Band strives to deliver engaging performances that are artistic, expressive, and polished. The ensemble presents its audiences with a wide variety of repertoire including chamber music, transcriptions, contemporary music, and works from the standard wind band repertoire. Symphonic Band meets during the fall, winter, and spring quarters (M/W/F 1:20 p.m.- 2:30 p.m.) and performs several concerts each academic year. Previous performances have included the California Music Educators Association Conference and a regional recruitment tour throughout California.
