The SIU Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Christopher Morehouse, Director of Bands and Professor, is the School of Music's select, touring wind band/ensemble, made up of approximately 40 of the finest instrumentalists at SIU. Membership is available to all SIU students, music majors, music minors, and non-music majors, who perform at an advanced level on woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, as well as double bass, piano, and harp.
The Wind Ensemble performs a series of five concerts each year in Shryock Auditorium, including a performance at the annual Heartland Honor Bands and Choir Festival each February, and travels regularly on regional, national, and international tours.
