Birmingham Symphonic Winds (BSW) is the UK's premiere wind orchestra, giving regular concerts in Birmingham, touring international festivals and taking the music of the UK to the world.

BSW was established in 1992 with the aim to meet the demands of players in the area wanting to perform with a high quality wind ensemble. Since then it has gained both a national and international reputation as one of the leading wind ensembles of its kind in the UK.

The 45-strong orchestra aims to promote enterprise and excellence through its performances and promotes its own themed concert series at the CBSO Centre, Birmingham home to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. These concerts have included distinguished soloists such as Alison Balsom (trumpet), Craig Ogden (guitar) and Sarah Williamson (clarinet). BSW also has a strong dedication to the creation and performance of contemporary works for wind orchestra, recently completing a 5-year commissioning project involving composers Philip Sparke, Nigel Hess and Kenneth Hesketh.

BSW made its New York debut in April 2011 with a critcally acclaimed concert at the prestigious Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and is currently preparing to visit Hong Kong in April 2014 as flagship ensemble at a new concert band festival.
