intercollegiate wind Ensemble

The Intercollegiate Wind Ensemble was comprised of the finest wind and percussion players from:

Kutztown University
Lehigh University
Moravian College
Muhlenberg College

In 1998, Albert Neumeyer proposed the IWE. In January 2010, the ensemble completed it's 12th year with a final performance. Each October the directors from the four institutions hand-picked ensemble members and selected repertoire. Music was distributed in December for a January weekend of rehearsals and a free performance. In addition, a guest conductor was invited to participate. The hosting duties rotated among the institutions.
