Arkansas Winds Christmas Concert

The Arkansas Winds Community Concert Band will present their annual Christmas concert titled "Krampus and Carols" on Sunday, December 18. The concert will be held at the Farmington Performing Arts Center, Arkansas 170 & Blue Sky Road, Farmington, Arkansas, at 3pm.

The Winds are proud to partner with the Farmington High School Honors Choir, under the direction of Laura Jackson, for the concert. This year, the town of Farmington and the public school music department were presented the national honor of Best Communities for Music Education. The two groups will be performing independently and jointly to present a fun holiday afternoon program including familiar Christmas carols and some less traditional fare.

Admission for the concert is free.

The Winds will perform the same concert on Monday, December 12th at 7:30pm for the residents of the Butterfield Trail Village Retirement Community.

Rehearsal change Monday, November 14th

We will have to *change* our rehearsal location on Monday, November 14th, due to a Farmington School Board meeting in the PAC building. We are too large to fit in the old bandroom, so that rehearsal will be in the commons area of the Randall G. Lynch Middle School, 359 Rheas Mill Road, in Farmington. This link https://goo.gl/maps/HJV3YJUb5ZL2 is a google maps link you can use for directions. Those of you who have been in the Winds for a while will remember we’ve rehearsed at this location in the past. The street name is pronounced “raise mill road”.

First rehearsal of the 2016-2017 Season

The first rehearsal of the Winds 2016-2016 season will be on Monday, October 31st, 2016 at the Farmington Performing Arts Center in Farmington, AR.
