The UW-Stevens Point at Wausau Concert Band is a community-university blend, including current and former UW-Stevens Point at Wausau students as well as other musicians from the Wausau area. Numerous generations and levels of experience provide an outstanding opportunity for credit students to perform with members having as many as 50+ years of performing.
The Concert Band performs in four concerts each year, with a “Preview” performance in October featuring the entire music program, a shared performance with the UW-Stevens Point at Wausau Jazz Ensemble in December, a full concert in early spring and a shared performance with the UW-Stevens Point at Wausau Concert Choir in May.
Music is selected for its musical value and variety, often highlighting classic band works from the last century. Every even year, the band's early spring concert features music related to the dance, from ballet to Broadway to ballroom.
