Westwind Brass is the sort of arts group every city should have. Their artistry needs no accolades from me -- just take a listen. What is most impressive is their innovation. Few groups of this kind take the time -- or have the expertise -- to adapt all sorts of music to the specifics of their area (in this case, brass quintet). They developed all sorts of new educational programs for San Diego schools, helping children see how learning about music helps them in all sorts of ways, including being linked to math and science! They collaborate with other arts groups to reach out to the community, and keep going in new directions. This is truly one group that stretches your donation dollar, and yields high returns, beyond what you have a right to expect. I am proud to have helped them, even a little, with their accomplishments.
