Join us on June 10th!

Arriving at last at the end of our 2013-2014 concert season, we cordially invite you to join us on the shores of Normandale Lake for an evening of outdoor music. This final lakeside performance has been a tradition for MSW for many years, and we’re excited to greet the new season with guests of all ages. Come one, come all!

In the Spotlight

“MSW showed my students that they can continue to play their instruments in a professional or community band even after college.”

— Dr. Joan deAlbuquerque

In April, the Minnesota Symphonic Winds performed a joint concert with the Luther College Concert Band. Afterwards, LCCB conductor Dr. Joan deAlbuquerque shared her thoughts on the experience.

Many thanks to director Joan deAlbuquerque and our friends in the Luther College Concert Band for helping to make last weekend’s spring concert a resounding success. We were honored to share an evening with such a fantastic group of young musicians!

Thanks also to supporters of both ensembles for an excellent turnout on Saturday—your attendance sustains and strengthens our musical community, and we are challenged and inspired by your feedback.

The end of the 2013-2014 season approaches… stay posted for updates on our final concert!
