Concordia Santa Fe is committed to the promotion of the wind ensemble genre and is one of handful of professional wind- and percussion-centric organizations in the USA. CSF ensembles perform exciting concerts representing a range of styles from a variety of musical periods, and piano, string instruments, voice and electronics are often included in our programs.
Our professional-level performing ensemble is the Wind Orchestra, comprised of 40 woodwind, brass and percussion musicians, which performs three concerts each year under the direction of a different guest conductor.
In addition, Concordia Santa Fe operates the High Desert Winds, a community wind ensemble whose mission is to provide music education experiences through the rehearsal and performance of challenging wind band repertoire. Participation in High Desert Winds is by invitation for adult and student musicians who are accomplished in music performance, are capable of performing challenging music, and are motivated to expand their musical knowledge.
