Repertoire selections cover the wide range of musical styles and genres that this relatively young medium has to offer, reaching from fascinating contemporary sounds, to familiar wind band classics. In addition to its annual concert series at SF State, the ensemble strives to offer a variety of community engagement activities, arts education services and collaborations, at little to no cost to student musicians. Further goals include collaborations with composers to support their ambitious, innovative musical visions.
