UMass Concert Band

Concert Band

For Fall 2020, Concert Band will be fully online. Since we will not be playing together, the format is changing to a survey of the wind band course. We will trace the origin and evolution of the wind, listen to its music and learn its key figures. The class will meet on Zoom on Thursday evenings, 7:30 pm EST for approximately 1 hour. In lieu of a performance, students will write 1 - 2 page reaction statements on the material presented in class. This will be an enjoyable way to learn more about the music we play in band.
