Thanks for a successful 2014-2015 concert season

We just wrapped up our 57th season with a memorable concert at the WASBE 2015 Conference in San Jose. Those of you lucky enough to be there with us in the California Theatre witnessed four thrilling performances of outstanding new works for wind symphony, topped off by Julie Giroux's modern masterpiece, Bookmarks from Japan. We were joined on stage by the amazing, exhilarating Premiere Saxophone Quartet, who brought the audience to its feet with their virtuosic ensemble playing in William Bolcom's Concerto Grosso. We'll remember this concert for a long time. 

But there's no rest for the weary — we're already busy at work preparing next year's concert series. We've posted the dates of the concerts in the sidebar to the right. We'll have more information as soon as it's available.

In the meantime, we'd like to thank the many people who helped make the past year a success. So thanks to all of our hard-working volunteers and friends, our corporate sponsors and individual contributors, and a heartfelt special thanks to our inspired and inspiring music and artistic director, Dr. Edward C. Harris. We can't wait to hear what he's got planned for us next year.

See you next season!
