The Virginia Tech Wind Ensemble, conducted by Jonathan Caldwell, a Visiting Assistant Professor of Music in the School of Performing Arts / Music, performed at the College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA) Southern Division Conference, which was held February 22–24 at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

This was the inaugural performance of the group for the CBDNA membership. As part of its conference preparation, the ensemble recorded Concerto de chamber, a previously unknown piece for wind ensemble by 20th–century composer Tōru Takemitsu; the recording is available as a free download on the Wind Ensemble website.
