The musicians in the Örebro Woodwind Ensemble are mainly students from the School of Music at the University of Örebro and music teachers from the Örebro area and its surroundings. Current ensemble consists of about twenty musicians.

The bass clarinet player Tomas Wikenius has arranged most of the music for the ensemble with its specific setting of traditional woodwind instruments like flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon combined with English Horn, Alto Saxophone and Double Bass.

The repertoire is very broad with a mixture of music styles. Therefore, Örebro Woodwind Ensemble can perform at different kinds of concerts and events.

Örebro Woodwind Ensemble has become very popular in Sweden with its unique sound and music arrangements.


Örebro Woodwind Ensemble is going to perform in a number of concerts in NYC during the Midsummer week in 2009. The ensemble will present a program based on Swedish music of various styles, composed by Roman, Söderman, Peterson-Berger, Alfvén, Moraeus, Andersson/Ulvaeus among others.
