Director: Dr. Michael Eckerty
The Simpson College Symphonic Band provides a quality musical experience for both music majors and students pursuing other academic areas. Directed by Michael Eckerty, the ensemble performs both classic band standards and modern wind compositions (Including the recent Iowa premier of David Maslanka's Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Wind Ensemble). The Symphonic Band gives multiple concerts each year. Emphasis is placed on solid musicianship, proper tone quality, and a commitment to the ensemble. The concert band tours biennially, and performed as a college Honor Band at the 2007 Iowa Bandmasters Conference.
