The threefold mission of the Whitworth Wind Symphony is to train and educate musicians for a lifetime of musical learning; to represent Whitworth’s mind-and-heart education though excellence in performance before audiences on campus, throughout the community and across the globe; and to advocate for and promote wind literature through the study and performance of the ensemble’s core repertoire as well as the commissioning of new works.
