Mission Statement

 The mission of the Connecticut Symphonic Winds is to provide high caliber musicians with an opportunity to perform challenging, stylistically diverse, quality concert band literature for community and public education audiences.


The Organization will strive, in its growing capacity, to give experience and aid in furthering the education and performance of exceptional and gifted music students on High School, College and Post Graduate levels.


As support for the Connecticut Symphonic Winds increases, the Ensemble will continue to endeavor to bring the experience of live wind ensemble music and the standard classical repertoire to those communities and audiences that lack artistic exposure.
