Kevin McKeown, Conductor
The Santa Monica College Wind Ensemble is a community-oriented organization. The group includes SMC students, some advanced placement high school students, and many adult musicians from the community, under the direction of conductor Kevin McKeown. The Wind Ensemble performs two concerts each semester in the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 10 p.m. on the Broad Stage.
The ensemble performs music written for woodwind, brass and percussion instruments; with programs balanced with both traditional and newly composed music.
