Current ensembles are the HWCB Silverwinds Flute Choir, the Westwind Five Woodwind Quintet, the HWCB Low Brass Quartet, the Westwind Big Band (WB2), and the Westwind Swing Band. The WB2 follows classic Big Band instrumentation but combines contemporary music with standards from the Big Band Era. The Westwind Swing Band uses a hybrid of Dixieland and swing instrumentation and features music of the 1920s-1940s.
Past performance venues for these groups have included community gatherings, private functions, and special events. They also have provided pre-concert music before HWCB concerts at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Ensembles are available for performances on weekends and weekday evenings with a minimum of three weeks advance notice. To contact us to play at a local event, please use our contact page.
