The foundation of the Sungkyunkwan University Wind Orchestra (SKKUWO) started from a small band with 6 members.
Since March of 1975, when the first concert was held, we have held concerts every year; this year, we are to hold our 44th annual concert. For many years since 1982, SKKUWO has participated in various nation-wide musical contests and won 17 awards. Notably, in 1997, 2000, and 2003, we made wind orchestra known to the students of Sungkyunkwan University, and honored our school greatly to the general people, by winning first place in musical contests for university students. In addition, SKKUWO took part in the Seoul Arts Festival and Daehak-ro Street Cultural Festival and gained great attention and applause from the public in 2005 and 2010. With this reputation, we are responsible for many official school events such as Entrance ceremonies and Graduation ceremonies, and the title for the best musical organization in Sungkyunkwan University.
To be worthy of our good name, SKKUWO strives to keep students diligent and passionate, constantly progressing by refining skills through regular exercises, and helping each other with encouragement and harmony.
