Since 1997, The Indiana Wind Symphony (IWS) has presented artistic performances of significant music for band and wind ensemble to the Central Indiana community. The ensemble is made up of eighty members and includes professional musicians, music educators, and serious avocational musicians. The IWS is a resident company at the Carmel Center for the Performing Arts, and performs its concert series at the Palladium concert hall.

Our organization plays a critical role in enhancing the quality of life for area residents by providing great symphonic music, which is an essential element of a vibrant community. While the IWS has successfully undertaken a unique and ambitious plan to grow audiences with innovative programs, our ticket sales cover only about one quarter of our operating expenses.
