Dedicated to furthering the experience and tradition of wind repertoire, Chicago Symphonic Winds is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded to fill the need for quality performances of wind repertoire in the Chicagoland area. CSW is actively involved in performances and educational outreach, as well as establishing relevant partnerships with local businesses and community programs.

Celebrating the rich history of the wind band, CSW focuses on diverse repertoire and a flexible instrumentation to give performances ranging in size from the smaller octets and nonets of European harmoniemusik, to full sized wind ensembles in the likeness of the American military band.
