Symphonic Band

The Clemson University Symphonic Band is a select wind ensemble that performs contemporary and traditional concert band literature. Frequent campus concert and tour appearances have earned high national praise for this band. Previous tours have included performances at the 2012 London Olympics, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Charleston, S.C., New Orleans' Jackson Square, and Walt Disney World.


Mission Statement:
As the premier wind and percussion performing ensemble at Clemson University, the Symphonic Band seeks to educate its performers and audience through the performance of music literature of the highest quality.

Auditions:

Please prepare two short excerpts demonstrating your lyrical and technical playing. These can be from any music of your choosing, such as an etude book, All-State audition piece, concerto, solo, etc. 4 minutes of total music is plenty.

Everyone who participates in Tiger Band and makes Symphonic Band or Jazz Ensemble automatically receives a $350 per semester scholarship.

Audition sign-ups for Symphonic Band (MUSIC 3620) will be available outside the band office (119 Brooks) during the first week of classes.
