The Whitehouse Wind Symphony is dedicated to presenting the best of the Wind Band literature. The Wind Symphony prides itself on performing much of the classic band literature but also exploring literature from the late 20th and early 21st Century. On many occasions, the Wind Symphony will perform selections written expressly for the band by current band members. The Whitehouse Wind Symphony concert series is developed around a mix of themes that both challenges the audience as well as the players. The annual children's concerts and holiday programs are two of the highly anticipated concerts presented by the Symphony.
Founded by Executive and Musical Director Casey Bork in 1996, and now under the direction of James P. Sheeley, Jr., the Whitehouse Wind Symphony has grown rapidly, attracting experienced musicians as regular members from all over New Jersey, as well as New York City and Eastern Pennsylvania. The group holds weekly rehearsals on Tuesday evenings at the Parish Hall of St. John's Episcopal Church in Somerville, NJ.
Over the past few years, the Symphony has performed in Chatham, Chester, Clark, Clinton, Cranford, Flemington, Hillside, Oxford, Pattenburg, Peapack, South Plainfield, Readington, Somerville, Tewksbury and Whitehouse.

The Symphony has recorded two CD's - "Whitehouse Sleighride" featuring holiday favorites, and "Not Your Concert In The Park" with selections from its 2000 outdoor summer concert series. These CDs may be purchased at any of our concerts.
