Symphonic band


The Southern Connecticut State University Symphonic Band is dedicated to providing an intellectually-stimulating, musically-challenging, dynamic, and diverse ensemble to the students and faculty of SCSU, while concurrently serving the musical needs of the entire Greater-New Haven community. Repertoire is focused primarily on the staples of the wind band idiom (often presenting works by Holst, Vaughan Williams, Ticheli, Holsinger, and Sousa), but balances programs with selections from various time periods and musical styles. Membership is open to all interested students at SCSU (both undergraduate and graduate), SCSU faculty and staff, as well as to community members who share the group's desire and dedication to learn and perform at consistently high levels. The ensemble regularly presents public concerts at various venues across the region, including several annual performances on the SCSU campus. The group is frequently invited to perform at concerts and festivals throughout the state, and welcomes the opportunity to work collaboratively with others who share in our passion for music. Anyone who is interested in acquiring more information about the ensemble or is interested in joining should contact the director, Craig Hlavac, at
