The Wind Conducting Program offers diverse and intensive performance and study opportunities in one of the finest comprehensive university band programs in the nation. Professor Richard Clary has designed the program along traditional European orchestral models, with a vigilant eye on the ever-expanding repertory of the university wind band/ensemble. Band conducting teaching assistants enjoy a range of conducting and rehearsing experiences in wind bands across the span of department offerings -- from the Campus Band and undergraduate University Concert and Symphonic Bands, to the renowned graduate-level University Wind Orchestra and Chamber Winds. Wind conducting majors are encouraged to pursue study opportunities with other FSU conducting faculty, and to conduct student ensembles for events such as the Festival of New Music, PRISM concerts, and chamber recitals.
Students perform in the chamber winds concert in February 2017.
