Southwest Winds, the woodwind quintet from the United States Air Force Band of the West will be presenting a concert at Founder’s Chapel located at White’s Chapel United Methodist Church Sunday, Mar. 27, 2011 at 3 p.m. This concert is free and the public is welcome.
Southwest Winds Quintet, a component of the United States Air Force Band of the West, brings the highest standards of musical excellence to its audiences. Fashioned after a typical orchestral wind section and comprised of five world-class instrumentalists, Southwest Winds promotes the concept of using classical chamber ensembles in musical support of Air Force recruiting and retention, troop morale, and community relations missions.
The inherent versatility of Southwest Winds enables it to perform a wide variety of music, from Mozart and Beethoven to contemporary jazz, popular music, marches and patriotic favorites. Capitalizing on this versatility, Southwest Winds provides entertainment at a multitude of venues to include official military ceremonies and functions, educational outreach at elementary and junior high schools, recruiting concerts at high schools and college campuses, and community relations concerts.
As part of the Air Education and Training Command at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, Southwest Winds is proud to represent the men and women of the United States Air Force. Combining pride in the Air Force story with their love of music and education, Southwest Winds brings a uniquely motivating experience to military and civilian audiences throughout Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, and New Mexico.
