Dear Arizona Winds Friends & Family,

As the Covid-19 social distancing orders continue to remain in place, the Arizona Winds, like all arts organizations, has had to make the difficult decision to cancel its April and May concerts for the 2019-2020 concert season. We continue to remain optimistic that this season of uncertainty will soon be behind us and we can look forward to a bright new concert season beginning on October 25th. Looking ahead, however, we will follow the guidelines of our federal, state and local leaders, and let you all know if we can plan on starting our new season on time.

In the meantime, may God protect each of you and keep you safe and healthy!

Thank you for your wonderful support. We hope to see you again soon!

During our temporary haitus, please enjoy these recordings from recent past concerts:

The Arizona Winds is celebrating its 45th year as a West Valley cultural institution. The band’s musicians, comprised of adults from across the Valley of the Sun and representing numerous professions from music educators to engineers, homemakers to accountants, continue to share their love of music and enrich the lives of audiences throughout the state of Arizona. The Arizona Winds is a 501 C(3) non-profit organization which presents a series of six free concerts each season and depends entirely upon the generous tax-deductible contributions of its patrons to sustain the superior level of performance thousands enjoy each year.

A little bit more about us…

We are an 85-member concert band located in Glendale, Arizona. Conducted by Lt. Col. Richard Shelton, USAF Ret., we are comprised of all ages and backgrounds, and together we make some great music!
