The Wisconsin Wind Orchestra was founded and is conducted by Professor of Music Lawrence Dale Harper. It was established in 1995 and became the resident professional ensemble of Carroll University in 1998. The group features some of the finest musicians in southeast Wisconsin, many of whom are on the applied music faculty at Carroll, and is recognized as one of the only ensembles of its kind in the world. The ensemble blends tradition, innovation and technical versatility in its repertoire of master composers and new works.
