The music of Sousa, Makris, Ticheli, Grantham, Arnol, Offenback, Grainger and others were on the program.

The bands are each becoming nationally recognized university bands. The Wind Symphony recently performed at the 2007 Texas Music Educators Association, an honor only bestowed on three collegiate ensembles per year, according to Travis Almany, the Associate Director of Bands.
