    Beautiful Music, Just Add Winds

    Conducted by Janet Greene

    Hamline Winds is the University’s concert band. The ensemble consists of 30-40 woodwind, brass, and percussion players, non-majors and majors alike. Hamline Winds perform two or three concerts each semester in Sundin Music Hall. Members of the Hamline Winds will improve their technical and musical skills, develop strong leadership and teamwork capabilities, greatly expand their knowledge of the repertoire, and deepen their love of music.

    Hamline Winds perform in numerous settings around campus and in the community. In addition to full band activities, Hamline Winds members support a pep band during fall football season and participate in chamber ensembles including flute choir, clarinet choir, sax quartet, brass quintet and percussion ensemble. Chamber ensembles may be invited to perform on student recitals, the Honors Day Recital, in neighborhood venues and in special university-wide events.
