The hallmark of study in the instrumental area at Augusta University focuses on the top-notch faculty and ensembles. We have a variety of ensembles for both the music and non-music major: Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Pep Band, Jazz Ensemble and various chamber ensembles. During 2019, the AU Wind Ensemble took two tours in the state of Georgia (Atlanta and Savannah).
