About the Lowcountry Wind Symphony
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.
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
band is open to wind and percussion musicians at all levels, and
strives to promote continuous learning through performance.
