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 lots of exciting things happening in the band department, so please stop by often and follow us on social media to learn more!
“Phoenix Winds” Wind Ensemble Announces Fall Program:
The fall 2018 program, to be performed in McCrary Theater on November 15th, will include works inspired by nature. Classics such as Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Sea Songs” and Pierre La Plante’s “In the Forest of the King,” will be performed along with more contemporary works such as Frank Ticheli’s “Sun Dance,” “Panoramic Landscapes” by Tyler Grant, and “Diamond Tide” by Viet Cuong.
Fire of the Carolinas Season off to a Great Start!
The FOTC performed their first show of the season, “Karaoke Hits Through the Years” at the home opener against Furman. The crowd pleasing hits had fans singing along. You can catch a repeat of this performance on homecoming weekend, or other exciting shows at any home game this season.
