The University of Louisville Symphonic Band is comprised of approximately 60 undergraduate and graduate students from the university representing both music and non-music majors. Its mission is to perform core works of the standard concert band repertoire. The regular concert season includes two concerts a semester as well as special clinics with public school programs. Under the direction of Dr. Amy Acklin, the ensemble has also championed new music, premiering works of Kevin M. Walczyk and Paul Brink and collaborated with composers David Maslanka and Steve Rouse. The UofL Symphonic Band has recorded multiple works of Steve Rouse, available at manhattanbeachmusic.com.
The UofL Symphonic Band recently performed at the 2015 Kentucky Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference in Louisville, Kentucky and at the 2016 CBDNA Southern Division in Charleston, South Carolina. Both performances represent a first in the UofL Symphonic Band’s history.
