The Long Island Symphonic Winds is a unique ensemble organized to tour and perform in Austria during the summer of 2023. The ensemble’s personnel is drawn largely from current students and alumni of Long Island University (LIU), but also includes students at other universities in the United States, as well as current music teachers and other invited musicians. Similar ensembles based out of LIU have toured internationally to Poland/Czech Republic (2009), China (2012), Puerto Rico (2015), and Australia (2018). With over sixty years of history, the Wind Band Program at LIU provides students with outstanding performance and educational opportunities, featuring on and off-campus performances at local venues, as well as regional, state and national conferences. In the last twenty-three years they have produced 29 CD/DVD recordings, sponsored fifteen regional band festivals, hosted multiple performance workshops, commissioned and premiered seven original works for concert band, and have been chosen to perform in two state music conferences. Annual Band Festivals have included week-long residencies with composers such as Jack Stamp, David Gillingham, Mark Camphouse, Frank Ticheli, Timothy Mahr, Roger Cichy, Philip Sparke, Julie Giroux, Martin Ellerby, Rossano Galante, Johan de Meij and Andrew Boysen, Jr.
