El Paso Wind Symphony

Tuesday at 8pm

KTEP is proud to present the 2014-2015 season of the El Paso Wind Symphony under the direction of Dr. Ron Hufstader.

The El Paso Wind Symphony is a concert band organized by Dr. Ron Hufstader and a small group of El Paso area band directors in the spring of 1995. The band consists of Greater El Paso residents, most of whom are band directors in area public and private schools. The primary purposes of the group are 1) to present concerts of quality wind literature to the public on a professional level; 2) to provide educational opportunities for middle school, high school, and college instrumental students; and 3) to provide a role model for middle school, high school, and college band programs. The Wind Symphony consists of approximately 45 players. This includes woodwind, brass, and percussion—the normal instrumentation for a concert band or wind ensemble.
