The Eastman Wind Ensemble is an American concert band founded by Frederick Fennell at the Eastman School of Music in 1952. Through the group, Fennell redefined wind ensemble to refer to a specific kind of wind band with only one player per part, and focusing on original wind music rather than orchestral transcriptions. The Eastman Wind Ensemble has premiered over 150 works, including works by composers Bernard Rands and Joseph Schwantner.

For a change of pace, this is a concert by the Harvard Wind Ensemble at McGill University in Montreal, on April 6, 1990. The conductor is Thomas G. Everett, and I'm in the back row on euphonium - taking the spotlight briefly for a solo starting at 10:30. I don't recall all the pieces on the program, but the second one (with the euphonium solo) is "Colors & Contours" by Leslie Bassett, and it's followed by "Variations on a Theme of Haydn" by Norman Dello Joio.
Wind ensembles (also known as 'concert bands', 'symphonic bands', 'wind orchestras', etc) are performing groups consisting mainly of woodwinds and/or brass instruments. Commonly associated with communal institutions -or the military- concert bands perform repertoires including original music, transcriptions of popular tunes, and light pieces. Marching bands feature a similar instrumentation, though they differ in that their purpose is to play music while marching, instead of functioning as a concert ensemble. Wind Ensemble's top 10 list.

The Eastman Wind Ensemble is America’s leading wind ensemble. Its core of about 50 performers includes undergraduate and graduate students of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester. Frederick Fennell first formulated the general concept of the wind ensemble at Eastman more than 50 years ago. Under his leadership the group became known as the pioneering force in the symphonic wind band movement in the United States and abroad. A. Clyde Roller served as conductor between 1962 and 1964, continuing the tradition established by Fennell. The album Carnaval, a collaboration with Wynton Marsalis, was nominated for a Grammy award in 1987 and reintroduced the public to an entire tradition of cornet showpieces for band. Other Sony Classical releases have featured new transcriptions of Bach organ works by Hunsberger, as well as contemporary works.
