Wind Ensemble

The Wind Ensemble is the premier wind band at California Baptist University. Under the direction of Dr. Guy Holliday, the Wind Ensemble performs original and transcribed works from the standard repertoire, inspiring sacred pieces, marches, film music, and new commissioned works from composers such as David Holsinger, Andrew Boysen, Mark Camphouse, James Stephenson, and Adam Gorb. The Wind Ensemble consists of approximately 50 members (winds, brass, and percussion) including music majors and other talented musicians who are selected by audition in the fall. Their performance schedule includes annual fall, winter, and spring concerts, the CBU Christmas event, shared concerts with local high school bands, and bi-annual concert tours.
