Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Rutgers Wind Ensemble has established itself as one of the leading wind bands in the United States. The ensemble presents concerts at the highest artistic level, performing both masterworks of the wind repertoire and new works, including pieces composed expressly for the group.

"Band Songs" presents engaging music ranging from "The Band Song" by William Schuman to the "Colonial Song" by Percy Grainger, with equally delightful "band songs" by William Bolcom, Herbert Owen Reed, Roger Nixon, Fergal Carroll, David Maslanka and David Gillingham along the way.
