The band’s April 5th concert brings to life some of Hollywood’s greatest “Oldies but Goodies” including music and video from “Casablanca”, “Singin” in the Rain”, “The King and I”, “From Russia With Love”, “Ben Hur”, “The Ten Commandments”, “Lawrence of Arabia”, “The Magnificent Seven”, “South Pacific”, and “The Wizard of Oz”. The band will even open the program like the theaters used to up until the late 1960’s, with a cartoon. 


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.
