Welcome to Auburn Winds! This page is where band members will find details about rehearsals, performances and who to contact. See links in the column on the left of this page to our Board of Directors, By-Laws and Policies & Procedures. If you have any questions, please contact a Board member or your section leader.
We have an exciting season of performances planned! Please see the Events page for a complete list of performances for the 2018/19 season. The formal concerts are the dates (performances and rehearsals) we are asking you to commit to as a band member. Other performances at community events are optional, but they are a great way to connect with friends and neighbors, so please try to attend as many as possible.
Parking at EV Cain is available on the playground, above the playing fields. The band room is located behind the gym on the south side of the campus. Chairs and music stands are provided at this location. Backup rehearsal locations (when school is out of session) will be announced, as needed. Note: If you must be absent for a rehearsal or formal concert, please give the conductor and your section leader, notice as soon as possible to arrange to have a competent substitute cover your part.
Auburn Winds, formerly Auburn Concert Band, incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization September 4, 2015 and took over operations of Auburn Concert Band on August 1, 2016. See the Board of Directors page for a list of current board members and their contact information.
Membership Dues: Dues are $100 per season and are due at the start of each season in August. Payments may be split into two payments of $50 each due at the beginning of each semester in August and January. Please make checks payable to: Auburn Winds, and give payments to Treasurer Mary Preston at rehearsal.
Performance Call Time:Call time is usually two hours before performance time. When we perform at the Auburn State Theatre, chairs are provided, but you will need to bring your own music stand and stand light. Black metal or sturdy plastic stands are preferred over metal, folding stands, for a more professional look.
