Thomas Verrier, conductor
The Vanderbilt Wind Symphony is one of the premier performing ensembles at Vanderbilt University and includes the outstanding woodwind, brass, harp, and percussion students at the Blair School of Music.
Recognized for its excellence and artistry, the Wind Symphony has received invitations to perform for state and regional conferences, at the National Conference of the College Band Directors National Association, at the Chicago International Music Festival in Orchestra Hall, and its members have toured internationally in Spain, Costa Rica, and Colombia.
At the Blair School of Music, a rotating menu of projects provides students with a range of wind and orchestral ensemble experiences within each semester. The true core of the Blair instrumental ensemble experience is the chamber music program. All students participate in chamber groups, which rehearse regularly in the hour preceding the conducted ensembles. This approach reflects our philosophy that great ensemble musicianship is inherently collaborative.
