Pacific Symphonic Wind Ensemble has become internationally known for its musical excellence. Currently conducted by Music Director David Branter, PSWE boasts many of the area’s finest wind and percussion musicians; from professional musicians, dedicated music educators, and outstanding amateur players. PSWE has worked with composers, conductors and soloists to perform new and unusual works in addition to classics of the wind ensemble repertoire.
PSWE is an active support of student musicians, and has a mandate to promote performing opportunities for music students of all ages. PSWE offers workshops and masterclasses with our skilled musicians and school bands, as well as joint concerts with school groups. There are also group rates to our concerts available for students.
PSWE had the honour of being an invited, featured ensemble at the World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles in San Jose in July 2015. This is one of the most prestigious band festivals in the world, and marked the 10th anniversary of PSWE's performance at the WASBE conference in Singapore in 1995.
PSWE has a full concert season at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in 2018/19.
