WIND ORCHESTRA


The Wind Orchestra was founded in 2007 to provide high-caliber wind-centric musical exposure to audiences in northern New Mexico.

Our music format focuses on the performance of contemporary – and traditional – works of wind orchestra literature.  And our programs are quite varied and can include period American and non-American pieces involving strings, voice, and a variety of keyboards.  As one of only a handful of professional-level wind orchestras in the country, we offer local and regional audiences the opportunity to experience music very few people can access.

Concerts are free to the public.

Previous Guest Conductors

Rather than engaging a full-time artistic director or conductor, the Wind Orchestra invites a guest conductor of national renown for each concert to select repertoire, rehearse the ensemble and present a performance.   All of our guest conductors are dedicated to advancing the wind orchestra format as a contemporary medium for live music.
