Repertoire List

The WASBE Repertoire List is a highly select collection of wind band compositions that have been chosen by WASBE members to assist conductors and others in seeking serious and distinctive repertoire for study and performance. The list is both small and in constant change. All works have been vetted by a select committee and many are recent works that have been performed at WASBE conferences and Repertoire Sessions. Most works are commercially published, but some are self-published by the composer.

As much as possible, each listed work contains important information that will assist one in evaluating the work for possible performance by including such information as country of origin, date of composition, difficulty (USA Grades, easiest, to 6, most difficult), duration, as well as titles of movements, if any and instrumentation.

The publisher’s website is included and a select YouTube performance is provided, if available. Also included in some works are program notes and a short biographical sketch of the composer.

WASBE members can suggest works to be added to this list by going to the MEMBERS page, sign in with your user name and password and complete the required information. Suggest a work »
