A Symphonic Band or concert band, may also called a wind symphony, wind orchestra, wind band, symphonic winds, symphony band, or symphonic wind ensemble.

A concert band's repertoire includes original wind compositions, transcriptions/arrangements of orchestral compositions, light music, and popular tunes. Though the instrumentation is similar, a concert band is distinguished from the marching band in that its primary function is as a concert ensemble. The standard repertoire for the concert band does, however, contain concert marches.
