Lakeshore Wind Ensemble

The Lakeshore Wind Ensemble plays a full spectrum of music from symphonic band literature, including dramatic classical works, rousing marches, swinging big band tunes, and lyrical ballads. Members are comprised of both community members and UW-Manitowoc students.

33 rd Concert Season - For the Love of Music

 “For the Love of Music” is our theme for the 2016-17 season. In a very real way, this is our theme for every year. The LWE is a group of dedicated and passionate musicians, professional and non-professional, some coming from quite a distance from Manitowoc, to meet and play music. For no financial compensation. It is what makes this kind of ensemble so inspiring to direct. Our concerts are our opportunity of sharing this passion with you, our audience.

The music has been chosen to provide a wide and rich musical experience for both the band and the audience, from show tunes, music for the holidays, and to some of the best in recent and classical composition for the band medium. We are delighted that mezzo-soprano Karen Leigh-Post, professor of voice at Lawrence University, will be joining us in our March concert.
