The Columbia University Wind Ensemble is one student group among hundreds of others, so it is not easy to stand out and gain recognition for our talents and effort. Therefore, our fans are invaluable in giving us confidence and feedback, and telling the Columbia community that we are important! Our supporters have included our friends and family who attend our concerts, our unofficial photographers, those who buy our CDs, and generous people who donate their instruments or spending money to us. Although the Wind Ensemble must run on a very tight budget, we are trying to expand our publicity, audience, instrument ownership, and opportunities to perform, which has increased our operating expenses. We would greatly appreciate any form of support. Please join our mailing list, order CDs, or find out how to make donations to the Wind Ensemble. You will be helping us in our dedicated goal of contributing to the performing arts at Columbia University!
