Cascade Winds Symphonic Band

Greetings Cascade Winds Supporters! 

Click play above on Sunday, March 6 to live stream our concert, or click here.

The members of the Cascade Winds are grateful to be rehearsing and performing once again and are set to perform their second concert of the season on March 6th, 2022 at 2:00 pm in the Summit High School Auditorium. Admission is free, and tickets are not required. All audience members are asked to abide by current pandemic protocols by wearing masks.
In order to reach as broad an audience as possible we will once again livestream the concert. A few days before the concert, a link will be sent to those on our email list and it will also be posted on the front page of our website. Please feel free to share the link with friends and family who might be interested in viewing the performance from wherever they may be. If you would like to be included on our email list, or are unsure if you are, send a message to and we’ll make sure that you are receiving Cascade Winds information.
The performance will be a one-hour affair, with no intermission (and sadly, no intermission refreshments). Highlights include a transcription of Rimsky-Korsakov’s trumpet fanfare “Procession of the Nobles”, the hauntingly beautiful “Lux Aurumque” of Eric Whitacre and music from the 1972 John Wayne film, “The Cowboys”, by John Williams.


Directed by Michael Gesme, the Cascade Winds perform a wide variety of repertoire that often spans several centuries and represents diverse musical styles

The members of the band feel that it is important that music is accessible to all, therefore our performances are free and open to all listeners. However, we still have production costs associated with our concerts. As a result we rely on individual and corporate donations as well as fees from the musicians themselves to support our operations. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and all donations go towards our direct operating expenses. No funding goes toward administration of the band which is fully supported by volunteers from within the group and the Central Oregon community.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated and your support will help further the presence of music in Central Oregon. You can learn about support the band on our donation page.
