San Francisco Wind Ensemble; Seggelke, Martin H.
The San Francisco Wind Symphony, originally founded as the San Francisco Wind Ensemble, is one of the finest wind bands of its kind on the US West Coast. Comprised of leading musicians from all across California, the SFWS brings high-quality performances of world-class wind band repertoire to Bay Area audiences and beyond. One of the San Francisco Wind Symphony’s primary goals is to explore the best music for the wind band genre from around the globe. Since its creation in 2012, the ensemble continues to bring an ever-increasing number of world premieres, US premieres, and West Coast premieres to its concert audiences. Invited performances at the international conference of the World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles, and the California All-State Music Education Conference, as well as live and studio recordings attest to the growing reputation and outstanding musicality of the San Francisco Wind Symphony. Composers, guest artists, critics, and audiences continue to praise the ensemble’s flexible color palette and artistic mission. Most importantly, the members of the SFWS relish the joy of collaborative musicianship- a joy that is passionately shared with you today.
