The Dallas Wind Symphony (DWS) is a professional concert band based in Dallas, Texas (USA).

The DWS was founded in 1985 by Kim Campbell and Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in 1990.

After the death of Howard Dunn in 1991, the DWS launched an extensive national search for a new artistic director. Jerry Junkin, Director of Bands at the University of Texas at Austin, was named DWS Artistic Director and Conductor in 1993. Frederick Fennell served as Principal Guest Conductor from the mid-1990s until his death in 2004.

The DWS has released numerous high-fidelity recordings since 1991 in partnership with Reference Recordings, most of which were produced using the patented HDCD encoding process. Three recordings have been nominated for Grammy AwardsTrittico (1994, Producer of the Year, Classical), Holidays and Ephiphanies (1998, Producer of the Year, Classical)[1] and Garden of Dreams (2007, Best Engineered Album, Classical).[2]

Excerpts from DWS concerts are frequently heard on American Public Media's Performance Today show.

Along with the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra, the Dallas Wind Symphony is regarded as one of the world's leading wind orchestras.
