Mission: Westwind Brass exists to broaden and enrich the musical legacy of local, national and international audiences through performance and educational services featuring brass instruments and music.
Through our outreach programs, our goal is to not only help provide a well-rounded education for children and create a healthier community, but also, by offering students the chance to participate in this learning process, we help build the future arts audience.
Geographic areas served: San Diego; California, Mexico, Continental US
The Westwind Brass ensemble is one of the professional groups in San Diego that has a priority on education as well as performance. Music education is getting shorted more and more every year as school budgets are squeezed. Westwind Brass goes to schools trying to let kids know how wonderful music can be. I have attended their summer clinics for adult amateur musicians, and it was fun as well as helpful for my own music performance. Of course listening to them perform is the most fun!
