The Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Andrea Brown, consists of 55-70 players who perform the masterworks of wind literature designed for the rich sonorities of an expanded instrumentation.
Auditions are held each semester, visit georgiatechband.com/auditions for more details. The Concert Band rehearses two days per week each semester (Fall – T/Th; Spring – M/W), as well as in the summer term. For more information, contact Dr. Brown by email at email@example.com.
