Welcome to Winds Across the Bay!

As a nonprofit organization our goal is to provide opportunities to Youth that support and encourage the study and love of instrumental music.

Winds Across the Bay is a Wind Ensemble (except for the occasional Double Bass) for young musicians who wish to become highly-skilled players. It is open to all students who display a high-intermediate to advanced musical proficiency in any wind, brass or percussion instrument, as well as, a desire to enhance their ability in the instrumental performing arts. Winds Across the Bay only recommends players have at least one-year of band experience. Winds Across the Bay performs a broad spectrum of classical and contemporary music. In previous years, Winds Across the Bay has performed pieces by Bernstein, Mussorgsky, Ellington, Gershwin, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Ravel, Smeltz, and many others. Tuition for the 2018-19 season (September thru January) is $250. Tuition includes once a week Tuesday rehearsals, and one formal performance. Financial assistance is available.

Please note that Winds Across the Bay is intended to supplement school’s music programs and strives to work with their school programs to provide young musicians with an additional opportunity to perform quality music in a professional environment.
