Wind Ensemble Auditions

IPFW Wind Ensemble

Welcome to the IPFW Bands Audition page! The IPFW Bands consist of two groups: the Symphonic Band and the Symphonic Wind Ensemble.  The Symphonic Band is open to all woodwind, brass, and percussionists on campus.  The Symphonic Wind Ensemble is an auditioned group that consists of music majors as well as outstanding non-majors.  It is highly encouraged that all audition for the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, however not required.  To the right, you will find a Band FAQ's page answering many questions you may have about the instrumental ensembles here at IPFW. Also you will find the excerpts for those wishing to audition for the Symphonic Wind Ensemble (all music majors are required to audition). Those wishing to sign-up are encouraged to do so on the door outside of room 120 in the Rhinehart Music Center.

Any questions can be directed to or the Department of Music office, (260) 481-6714.
