The Colorado Wind Ensemble is metro Denver’s urban wind symphony, featuring the versatile and sumptuous sounds of 45 woodwinds, brass, and percussion.  The CWE performs all around the region, playing everything from classics by Holst and Grainger to current contemporary sounds of Schwantner and Corigliano.  Formal season concerts, chamber music, summer band in the park, collaborations with other artists, and educational outreach with students are critical components of our vision.  Our mission is to present exceptional live performances of the various genres of music for woodwinds, brass, and percussion to audiences and students.  We hope you will join us!
