About the Lowcountry Wind Symphony

The Lowcountry Wind Symphony began as an ‘idea’ in June 2014 with the formation of a Planning Committee and a belief that there is a wealth of talent in Beaufort and vicinity interested in performing in a traditional band setting. The call for musicians was answered – slowly at first, but quite enthusiastically. Musicians from throughout the area – Beaufort, Bluffton, Dataw Island, Hilton Head and Parris Island – came to an initial general meeting in September 2014. The first rehearsal was held on October 22, 2014. Now numbering more than 60 musicians, the growth has been steady and gratifying.

The LWS made its first public performance at a combined concert with the Parris Island Marine Band and the Beaufort High School Bands. From that initial performance in May 2105, full concert seasons have been planned and presented to audiences who are now familiar with the musical quality and varied repertoire performed by the LWS.

Each season, the LWS now presents exciting three-concert series to area audiences, beginning with two annual Veterans Day concerts. Music Director Donald Jemella and Assistant Director Deborah Hamner have the ensemble immersed in the great music available for concert band. Programs include selections from the vast literature written for winds and percussion, and some of the great transcriptions for Band. Add in patriotic music, marches from the masters of the genre, and tunes from Broadway and the Silver Screen, and there is a recipe for broad and diverse appeal to all musical tastes.

The band is open to wind and percussion musicians at all levels, and strives to promote continuous learning through performance.
