Los Angeles Symphonic Winds, Stephen Piazza, Director
Since their founding in 1983, the Los Angeles Symphonic Winds has become part of Southern California’s cultural community. They have toured annually throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe to a large number of audiences. Their membership is drawn from the vast pool of Los Angeles–based professional, semiprofessional, and amateur musicians, many of whom have performed with major symphonies, recording studio orchestras, and entertainment-world headliners. Premiere performances of works by American composers and arrangers such as Bill Cunliffe, Michel Mention, Michael Daugherty, Lionel Greenberg, John Hoover, Bob Joles, Howie Segurson, Michael Kibbe, and Charles Fernandez have supported the evolution of the Winds’ music. The L.A. Symphonic Winds have developed through working with guest artists such as Colonel Arnald Gabriel, H. Robert Reynolds, Thom Lee, David Whitwell, Donald Caneva, Dale Underwood, Jim Self, Charley Davis, and Fritz Kaenzig.
