If you have experience on a wind instrument, we hope you will consider performing in one of our fine ensembles. The Radford University Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band, under the direction of Dr. Wayne Gallops, provide music majors and non-majors with wonderful performance opportunities throughout the academic year. Each year the Bands prepare 6-8 on-campus concerts. The Douglas and Bea Covington Center for Visual and Performing Arts serves as home to the Radford University Bands, featuring rehearsal halls and a state of the art performance space.
Placement in the Wind Ensemble or Symphonic Band is by informal audition during the first week of classes.
The Chamber Wind Ensembles also perform in concert at various university venues and tour throughout the region.
