L’Ensemble à vents de Sherbrooke / The Sherbrooke Wind Ensemble, founded thirty years ago, and under the musical direction of François Bernier for the last 12 years, is today considered to be one of the best wind orchestras of the Province. For six consecutive years (2004-2009), it has won the first prize at the annual Festival of Wind Ensembles and Symphonic Orchestras of the Province of Québec as well as winning the prestigious Yamaha Trophy for the last three festivals. In 2011, the Sherbrooke Wind Ensemble was invited to give the opening concert of the 2011 Festival with the participation of the internationally acclaimed Belgian composer and musical director, Jan Van der Roost.
The Sherbrooke Wind Ensemble is pleased to be part of Centennial Theatre’s 2016-2017 program offerings. Following its musical tradition established since 1982, the wind ensemble, with its 60 musicians, will offer its Centennial Theatre’s audience a repertoire of works for wind ensembles at both of its concerts.
