The most pride-filled weekend for CU Winds each year is Commencement Weekend near the end of May. In addition to the large commencement ceremony attended by 40,000 graduands, family members and faculty in Schoellkopf Stadium, the ensemble performs at its senior week concert and day before.
The CU Wind Symphony and associated student organization CU Winds unite student musicians dedicated to the study and performance of emerging and traditional wind repertoire. We explore music making as a vehicle for cross-cultural exchange and collaboration, and in doing so support Cornell's core values of public engagement and global awareness.
