The Spirit of the Green Wave

Green Wave Winds

Green Wave Winds is a competitive Indoor Winds group established as a student club in 2016 to compete in the new WGI Winds division. WGI Winds is hailed as "The Next Step in the Marching Arts" and held their inaugural competition season in many circuits around the world in 2015.  Under the direction of Andrew Szypula and Mendel Lee, the group seeks to extend Tulane's musical outreach into the competitive realm, offering a performance ensemble like no other at Tulane. Unique and theatrical productions bring a competition floor to life with music, dance, color guard, and electronics!

GWW is a brand new competitive ensemble competing in the Louisiana-Mississippi Color Guard and Percussion Circuit (LMCGPC) for this year! The group came out swinging with their 2016 program, "Time Curve," with original music by Andrew Szypula and drawing from William Duckworth's Time Curve Preludes. Drill design by Andrew Szypula and Mendel Lee, choreography by Rachel McAleer. The ensemble was met with high honors from the adjudication and in 2016 became the first Winds Independent A Class Champions of the LMCGPC! The GWW is honored to participate in the newest division of the pageantry arts!

In 2018, Green Wave Winds presented a concert program “A Night at the Pops” to give TUMB members a concert experience during the Mardi Gras season. Any Tulane student is eligible to join Green Wave Winds, for info, click the button below to fill out our interest form!
