The Hindsley Symphonic Band is the third of five concert ensembles within the University of Illinois Bands. Comprised of music and non-majors alike, the ensemble is set within a traditional symphonic band. This ensemble has a set instrumentation and performs large ensemble works, quality repertoire on various levels, historic transcriptions, and focuses on both experience and proficiency development for student members. Concerts for the Hindsley Symphonic Band are held on campus in the Great Hall of the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. The ensemble is open to both music majors and non-majors by audition the first week of classes each semester.
