Symphonic Band

The Alabama Symphonic Band is one of four wind bands housed within the University of Alabama School of Music. The Alabama Symphonic Band performs four concerts each year, in addition to performing at the annual Alabama Honor Band Festival each February. The ensemble has been invited to perform at prestigious events such as the College Band Directors National Association Convention, the Southern Division of the Music Educators’ National Conference and the Alabama Music Educators Association State Conference. Membership of the ensemble is selected by audition in the fall of each year. The band performs a varied repertoire of literature ranging from the most cutting edge new literature to the cornerstone classics of the wind band repertoire. The ensemble rehearses two days each week. All concerts are open to the public, free of charge and begin at 7:30 PM (unless otherwise announced).
