This study examined the programming trends of the elite wind bands/ensembles of the Atlantic Coast Conference universities. Using survey techniques previously employed by Powell (2009) and Paul (2010; in press), we contacted the directors of the Atlantic Coast Conference band programs and requested concert programs from their top groups for the time period beginning fall 2002 and ending spring 2009. We then entered 1,210 performances of individual pieces into a database. With 15 performances each, "Irish Tune from County Derry" and "Lincolnshire Posy" (both by Percy Grainger) were the most programmed works. Percy Grainger was the most frequently programmed composer, with 75 performances of 23 individual compositions. Of the 705 unique pieces, 75.7% were original band works. Eleven new compositions were premiered during the study period.
