The Salt Lake Symphonic Winds

The Mountain West's most prolific wind and percussion ensemble for nearly twenty years, The Salt Lake Symphonic Winds is a community-sponsored concert band performing in Salt Lake City and surrounding cities. 

The Symphonic Winds is a non-profit organization dedicated to the highest-quality performance of the vast wind band repertory in the communities in which we live and work—those of the Wasatch Front.

Demonstrating a commitment to music education in Utah's schools almost from inception, the 'Symphonic Winds have performed in tandem with nearly 20 of Utah's secondary school bands since 2003 alone, frequently providing clinics to the students with whom they perform.

Membership is comprised of people from all walks of life, most of whom are former college players and many who play professionally. During the regular concert season—which includes five concerts—repertoire is chosen from the finest wind and percussion literature available ranging from traditional to contemporary styles in a myriad of genres, including overtures, symphonies, concertos, suites, and marches.

The artistry of this ensemble is demonstrated by its selection and performance at the Music Educators National Conference National Convention in Salt Lake City in April, 2006, and the group has also performed at the professional conference of the Utah Music Educators Association.  From 2005-2009, the Symphonic Winds was the feature ensemble for the July 4 fireworks celebration in Sugar House Park, entertaining as many as 65,000 people.

Musical Director is Thomas P. Rohrer, Director of Bands and Director of Music Education at Utah State University.
