The University of Miami Frost School of Music is home to some of the top concert bands in the country including the Frost Wind Ensemble and Frost Symphonic Winds.
The Frost Wind Ensemble performs music that is written especially for wind ensemble instrumentation (a large chamber ensemble featuring one wind or brass instrument per part, plus harp, percussion, piano and double bass). It premieres and records contemporary works by today’s leading composers. The ensemble performs at national conferences and major festivals, and with notable guest artists.
The Frost Symphonic Winds is a larger ensemble and performs an interesting mix of traditional concert band works as well as new works. It also provides rehearsal/podium time for Instrumental Conducting graduate teaching assistants.
In addition to our fine wind bands, many of our music majors also perform in the Frost Symphony Orchestra, Frost Chamber Orchestra and the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra plus numerous like-instrument and mixed chamber groups.
The Frost School of Music also organizes the concert activities of the University Band, which meets in the spring and is open to all full time students of the University of Miami, regardless of major.
