The Triangle Wind Ensemble is an adult wind ensemble based in North Carolina's Triangle region. Many of the area's most talented wind and percussion players join together to practice and perform an exciting range of music for audiences in both formal and informal settings. Our repertoire includes transcriptions of classical orchestral music, original compositions for wind band, small ensemble pieces, popular medleys and arrangements, as well as holiday and patriotic music for special occasions. We present multiple concerts each season in locations across the Triangle, including Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and Chapel Hill.
