Description and History
The University Wind Ensemble is offered for the study and practice of traditional and contemporary wind band repertoire. The Wind Ensemble’s long history at Cal dates back to before the 1930s, when the group was directed by Charles Cushing. In 1950, James Berdahl assumed the directorship and remained until the late 1970s. The Wind Ensemble’s activities were revived when Robert Calonico (also Director of UC Bands) took over as director in 1995. The Wind Ensemble performs regularly, including once per semester in Hertz Hall.
Membership in the Wind Ensemble is open to enrolled undergraduate and graduate students at the University of California, Berkeley only, and an audition is required.
Regular attendance at weekly rehearsals and participation in public performances is required.
Auditions occur during the first week of classes. Call (510) 643-9644 or stop by Room 43 César Chavez Center to schedule an audition.
