We are the Florida Wind Band, a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to provide a unique, live music experience to music lovers of all ages. From the "Golden Age" of the touring concert band to recent masterworks by contemporary composers, the Florida Wind Band offers a wide variety of repertoire sure to delight audiences with every performance.
Founded in Tampa in 2008 with the goal of becoming a leading civilian professional band, our organization continues to grow not only in audience participation, but in talent as well.
Our most notable activities include:
- December holiday concert of seasonal new and classic music
- Cinco de Mayo concert featuring a wide range of Latin & Hispanic music
- July concert feature a patriotic tribute
- Associate youth ensemble (Bay Winds) which rehearses throughout the spring and performs in May
The Florida Wind Band now needs YOU to be able to move forward with our newest project! We are currently raising funds for a special CD recording project. This CD will serve as a major contribution to contemporary wind band recordings and a warm tribute to our friends in the arts community of Tampa Bay. The finished CD will be offered for sale, supporting the Florida Wind Band as we strive to increase our educational outreach to our local schools and beyond.
Geodes: Hidden Gems & Precious Diamonds will be a unique blend of masterworks that have not gotten the attention they deserve (Hidden Gems) and new band works that are destined to be the next band music classics (Precious Diamonds). We hope you will help us with this endeavor.
Funds raised for this project will cover: - Rehearsal & Recording Session with our local professional musicians
- Sound Engineering & Editing
- Licensing Fees & Music Rental
- CD Production & Printing
