The Los Angeles Symphonic Winds is comprised of approximately 100 members, led by Maestro Stephen Piazza. Membership is drawn from the vast pool of gifted Los Angeles-based professional, semi-professional and amateur musicians, many of whom have performed with major symphonies, motion picture and television recording studio orchestras and entertainment-world headliners. The L.A. Winds present a six concert subscription series before sold-out houses in the beautiful Performing Arts Center on the campus of picturesque, suburban Los Angeles Pierce College.

Membership in the L.A. Winds is limited to those accepted following a short audition process, which may include playing individually for the section leader or director, and sitting in on a rehearsal. It is advisable to come to a rehearsal prior to auditioning to get a feel for the group and its music. Guests are welcome to listen anytime. If you wish to audition, please contact us to determine the next appropriate date and to get specific information on auditioning.

Rehearsals are held from 7:15 PM to 10:00 PM on Mondays at Los Angeles Pierce College in Woodland Hills.The rehearsals are held in room 3401, which is located near parking lot 6 at the top of the hill. The band does not follow the standard Pierce College schedule, and generally rehearses throughout the year, with a short break (two to three weeks) in December and another short break (usually one month) during the summer.

Los Angeles Pierce College is located in the San Fernando Valley, in the community of Woodland Hills. The college is located between DeSoto Ave. and Winnetka Ave., just south of Victory Blvd. and north of the 101 freeway.
