The Indiana Symphonic Winds, the community band for IUP Community Music School, will perform its first concert of the fall semester at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 4, in Fisher Auditorium as part of the IUP Music Department’s Homecoming Concert, titled “A New Beginning.”

Indiana Symphonic Winds RehearsalThe performance will be the first for the ensemble since being combined with the IUP Concert Band, one of the three wind bands within the Music Department. The other two ensembles—the IUP Wind Ensemble and the IUP Symphonic Band—will also perform in the concert.

The combined ensemble now features the talents of IUP music students, IUP students with other majors, high school students who have been recommended by their band director to participate under scholarship, and members from the community. It is conducted by music faculty member Jason Worzbyt.

The concert is also the debut of Timothy Paul, the senior wind band director and conductor of the Wind Ensemble, as he begins his tenure at IUP following the recently retired director of Band Studies, Jack Stamp.
