The tradition of the wind band has increased in popularity around the world. Concert bands, brass bands and wind ensembles continue to grow both in numbers and quality. These bands have gained recognition for being both interesting and versatile, no longer a "poor cousin" to the orchestra. The EASTMAN WIND ENSEMBLE is the most famous of the wind ensembles. The beauty of this size of group is that, with only one player to a part, it has a more chamber ensemble sound, with 40 or so players, than what is known as the symphonic band, which can have as many as 150 players.
