Cascade Winds Symphonic Band

As you are no doubt aware, the COVID-19 Pandemic has adversely affected our ability to perform live for an audience. Our Spring 2020 concert was cancelled and sadly, concerts with a live audience are just not possible right now.

We wait for a brighter future when we can all get together again and share our music in person.

Thank you to all who participated in the recent Online Auction jointly sponsored by the Central Oregon Symphony and the Cascade Winds. We will be updating the site with the financial results once they become available. If you want to see what you missed, Please Click Here to go to the Auction site


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.
