Founded by Dr. Frederick Harris, Jr. in the fall of 1999, the MIT Wind Ensemble is comprised of advanced undergraduate & graduate MIT students from a wide range of disciplines. MITWE performs four concerts per year on the MIT campus and one off-campus. Repertoire includes standard outstanding wind repertoire and new music for full wind ensemble, chamber winds, brass ensemble, percussion ensemble, and woodwind ensembles.
Since 2001, the MIT Wind Ensemble has commissioned dozens of original works and has worked with Pulitzer Prize-winnners, the late Gunther Schuller, John Harbison, Michael Colgrass, and many other composers. MITWE has two professional CDs, Waking Winds (2004, Innova Records) and Solo Eclipse (2008, Albany Records). MITWE has been featured on PBS and NPR. Soloists with MITWE have included Kenneth Amis (tuba player of the Empire Brass), Don Byron, Evan Ziporyn, Kenny Werner, Bill McHenry, and numerous student soloists. "[MITWE performs with] a tremendous amount of passionate music-making and artistry . . . [it] plays at a consistently mature, aesthetically engaging level," notes Boston's The Art Fuse in a 2013 MITWE concert review.
