The mission of the Elon University Band Program is to provide our students with a variety of unique and high quality musical, artistic, and social experiences. We offer three outstanding ensembles, the “Phoenix Winds” Wind Ensemble, the “Fire of the Carolinas” Marching Band, and the Elon Basketball Band. There are always many exciting things happening in the band department. Follow us on social media to learn more!


“Phoenix Winds” Wind Ensemble Is Accepting New Members:


Registration to join the wind ensemble is open to any student at Elon University with experience playing a wind or percussion instrument. There are no auditions to join the ensemble if you meet the experience requirement; however, there are small part placement auditions held at the beginning of each semester. Sign-up sheets for these placement auditions will be posted outside the band room (CFA 164) one week before school begins and the materials needed can be found at this link Phoenix Wind Audition Materials. If you have any questions about the Phoenix Winds, feel free to email Dr. Poquette at
