In 2005, the group performed at the CBNDA National Conference held at New York University and also presented a concert at Carnegie Hall later that spring. The Ensemble played in Town Hall in New York in 2000. It has performed at regional CBDNA and MENC conferences and has presented 16 performances at NJMEA conventions since 1993.

As part of its commitment to new modes of performing, the ensemble has recorded 19 compact discs, which have collectively earned 33 Grammy Entry Listings.

In the words of Classical New Jersey critic William Allin Storrer, the Rutgers Wind Ensemble is “the Rolls Royce of wind ensembles.”
