About the Conductor

Frederick Fennell first formulated the general concept of the wind ensemble at Eastman nearly 65 years ago. Under his leadership the group became known as the pioneering force in the symphonic wind band movement in the United States and abroad. A. Clyde Roller served as conductor between 1962 and 1964, continuing the tradition established by Fennell. Donald Hunsberger became conductor in 1965 and led the ensemble for 37 years to international prominence through multiple tours abroad.

The ensemble’s current director, Mark Davis Scatterday, was introduced as the fourth conductor of this prestigious group during the EWE’s 50th anniversary celebration on February 8, 2002.

In the summer of 2016, the Eastman Wind Ensemble Harmonie became the first EWE group to perform in Europe. Founded by music director Dr. Scatterday in 2014, the ensemble serves as a training ensemble for graduate conductors and also performs a wide spectrum of repertoire spanning over 200 years, including original harmoniemusik compositions/ arrangements of the 18th and 19th century and contemporary European and American literature.
