2024 Meet & Greet Event for Students

Do you have a child or student interested in music, learning about band instruments, and seeing what it’s like to participate in a music ensemble? Come to Wille Hall February 1st and have them “sit inside” the Cascade Winds band!  Admission is free.

Check-in begins at 6:00 and festivities begin at 6:30pm. Students are invited to speak with the musicians and ask questions prior to rehearsal.

The rehearsal begins promptly at 7pm. There are seats available within the band so students may get up close and personal with the Winds musicians. There are 50 seats – first come first serve. Your child or student will Experience the Winds.

You must preregister. Arrive in time to check in and get your golden ticket. To preregister, send an email to info@cascadewinds.org, with “Tickets” in the subject line. Please include the student’s name and instrument preference.

Check out our 2019 Meet & Greet for an idea what your child or student will experience.  We hope to see you there!

Doll House Raffle Results

Last year, The Cascade Winds sold raffle tickets at the Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 concerts for a beautiful doll house made by one of our musicians, Erik Hoagland.

Due to the pandemic, We were unable to hold the final ticket sale and raffle which was to have been during our Spring 2020 concert.

After learning that Fall 2020 live concerts were unlikely to happen, the Cascade Winds Board decided it should move forward with the raffle using the tickets already sold.

Below is a video showing the raffle and the results.
