Welcome to WASBE
World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles (WASBE) is the only international organization of wind band conductors, composers, performers, publishers, teachers, instrument makers and friends of wind music. It is the only organization completely dedicated to enhancing the quality of the wind band throughout the world and exposing its members to new worlds of repertoire, musical culture, people and places. WASBE is a non-profit international association open to all individuals, institutions and industries interested in symphonic wind bands and wind ensembles.
When we become a part of the World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles family, our world becomes smaller, we have more direct access to wind band people, traditions, styles, literature, and performance practices previously beyond our reach.
International focus – our members come from across the globe
Musical education – we encourage learning and growth
People & Music not profits – WASBE is a non-profit association
