The University of Michigan is celebrating its 200th anniversary this calendar year. The YouTube links below are archival recordings of the Symphony Band performing important works for our medium all conducted by the composer. We hope these recordings will provide valuable insights into the composer’s interpretation and be useful as primary resources for generations of wind conductors at various levels of teaching.
We hope to post additional archival recordings throughout the year as we celebrate our bi-centennial.
All best wishes,
