The Yale Concert Band, a group of 45-50 wind, brass, and percussion players, embraces the aesthetics of the traditional wind band and the contemporary experimental ensemble. Our repertoire consists of a panoply of wind band classics; premieres by and commissions of Yale students, faculty and established world-class composers; and the newest wind band literature that incorporates electro-acoustic sounds, folk/rock/hiphop music, soloists, and theatrical trappings.
Our music has been exported around the world - in the last year, the Yale Concert Band has performed in New York City's Carnegie Hall, Bethesda's Strathmore Hall, and in concert halls and on stages in South Africa and Swaziland. In 1959, the Yale Concert Band became the first college band to produce an international tour, and, since then, has appeared in concerts in Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Mexico, Brazil, Bermuda, Russia, Finland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Spain, Ireland, England, France, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Holland, and Belgium.
