Welcome to the 2019 season for the Brandywine Wind Band. We have been in existence for 12 years now. Our concert band and our jazz band are looking forward to many performing opportunities this year.
We want to thank our families, friends, and patrons for a great 2018. We hope to build our tradition of making great music for you and challenging ourselves to be better. The Brandywine Wind will continue to be a dedicated contributor to the art and culture in our community.
The band needs your support and contributions to make 2017 the best it can be. As you consider your gifts to non-profits in 2017, please include the Brandywine Wind band program.
To provide an artistic avenue for area musicians to prepare and perform music for the enjoyment of our community and each other.
One of the driving forces behind the formation of The Brandywine Wind is a phenomenon known as the “comeback player”. There are thousands of young people who participate in band during their high school years. However, only a handful of these continue with music throughout college and beyond. For the rest of us, those old memories of camaraderie, concerts, and the joy of making music together are not lost, but rather are set aside. They become rekindled as that old instrument case is opened, the smell of valve oil and seasoned brass precedes the feel of that former friend as it seems to fit within your hands just the way it did back in the day. Maybe those first sounds are not quite as sweet as the memories, but, as you play, the notes begin to fit. When you begin to play with other like-minded folks and actually make music that is fun to play, great to listen to and challenging to master, you may find it difficult to stop. The Brandywine Wind is filled with friendly and fun people of all ages. Our community band provides a venue for players of all levels.
