Columbia University Wind Ensemble

Columbia Festival of Winds

The Columbia Festival of Winds is a day long festival hosting by the Columbia University Wind Ensemble featuring concert bands from the greater New York City area. The Festival begins with an Honors band consisting of select players from all participating ensembles, and ends with a massed band, which includes all performers.

The event doubles as a fundraiser for music education outreach in the neighborhood around Columbia, and all proceeds will go to Columbia's Musical Mentors Collaborative. The goal of the Columbia Festival of Winds 2015 is to build on the success of previous years and continue to provide children with the opportunity to discover their musical talents. The Columbia University Wind Ensemble seeks to maintain this real and positive change for inner-city students and believes that the Festival can continue to bring instruments, music, and learning to schools without music programs.
