Taipei Symphony Orchestra established TSO Wind Orchestra in an attempt to cultivate wind talents and promote the culture of wind instruments in 2002. Apart from annual concerts at the National Concert Hall and Zhongshan Hall, TSO Wind Orchestra also participated in events organized by the city government, as well as community performances and campus concerts. They hosted a concert at Xinghai Concert Hall in Guangzhou in 2006 and were invited to perform at the Asia Pacific Band Festival in Macau. In July 2010, TSO Wind Orchestra was specially invited to attend the Asia Pacific Band Festival in Tainan.
 
Belgian conductor Jan Van der Roost was invited to lead performances in June 2007. In the same year, the group collaborated with trombone virtuoso Christian Lindberg performing his “Mandrake in the Corner” and assembled 100 Taiwanese trombonists to perform “Seventy-Six Trombones”. The performance set a new record for the hall and was widely discussed among wind musicians. In 2009, TSO Wind Orchestra performed with Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music wind conducting professor Rodney Winther, and in 2010, Jerry Junkin from Dallas Wind Symphony was invited as a guest conductor. Starting 2011, conductor François Boulanger of Orchestre d’harmonie de la Garde Républicaine was regularly invited as guest conductor.
 
With goals of excelling wind performance and promoting education, along with the wish to be deeply rooted in the community, TSO Wind Orchestra will continue to invite and collaborate with distinguished conductors, staging performances both domestic and abroad to present music lovers with exquisite and elegant music and be the representative of Taipei city.
