We are very excited to be celebrating the 10th season for the Senior Wind
ensemble, as well as the first full season for Junior Winds. We plan to
incorporate this milestone into our planning this year, including plans for an
end-of-year fundraising event. Please let us know if you have interest and/or
expertise in helping to plan this event, most likely to occur in June 2020.
