WELCOME to to the Cascade Winds Symphonic Band website. The Cascade Winds is a dynamic ensemble of some of the region’s finest musicians who are dedicated to creating an entertaining and enjoyable musical experience for audiences of all ages.
As you are no doubt aware, the COVID-19 Pandemic has adversely affected our ability to perform live for an audience. Our Spring 2020 was cancelled and a live audience Fall 2020 concert will not be possible. While we wait for a brighter future when we can all get together again and share our music in person, the Cascade Winds are working on several projects that will help keep the music alive for Central Oregon.
Check back here regularly, We hope to make several further announcements in the near future.
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.
