Wind Ensemble/University Band
"The University of Evansville has a rich tradition of bands open for all students on campus. I invite you to explore the many opportunities available to you at UE including Wind Ensemble, University Band and Aces Brass."
— Dr. Kenneth Steinsultz, Director of Bands
The University of Evansville Wind Ensemble is comprised of approximately 45 of our finest brass, woodwind, and percussion performers. The ensemble performs a wide variety of literature from major masterworks for the modern wind band to more intimate chamber literature and is also actively involved in commissioning and performing new works. In addition to its campus concerts, the group represents the University both regionally and nationally. Membership is by audition and is open to any UE student, regardless of his/her major.
University Band and Aces Brass
The University Band is made up of both music majors and non-music majors. This ensemble performs both traditional and contemporary works for winds and percussion, presenting one concert each semester. In addition to concert performances, University Band is divided into two athletic bands (Aces Brass) that perform at all home basketball games and travel to the MVC and NCAA tournaments.
