From the Director

“Making fine music come alive is an engaging and worthwhile challenge, as well as a rejuvenating source of joy and gratification that deepens with age and experience. The Minnesota Symphonic Winds takes this all quite seriously, while managing to have a lot of fun in the process!”

— Dr. Timothy Mahr, Conductor
 
In the Community

“…the members of MSW are living proof of the power and enjoyment that comes from music. They perform with a level of skill, sophistication and heart that rises above the typical ‘community band’ performance and borders more ​on a professional level ensemble.”

— Paul Kile, Director of Bands, Edina High School; MSW Member

Paul Kile is a long-time member of the Minnesota Symphonic Winds, and regularly leads the Edina High School band in joint performances with MSW.
