Due to the weather and condition of the roads, tonight's rehearsal will be cancelled. Please make sure you're practicing on your own to maintain your breath support and lip strength. From this week we will have 3 rehearsals and a dress rehearsal before the March 1st concert.
Due to the ice and record breaking cold temperatures, rehearsal is cancelled for January 6, 2014.
On Saturday, December 14th, from noon to 8pm, members of the band will be performing in small ensembles at the Barnes and Noble book store in Fayetteville. This event is a fund raiser for the band. Barnes and Noble will donate a percentage of the price of books bought that day to the Arkansas Winds Community Concert Band -- just present a copy of the flyer to the store clerk when you make your purchase, and the clerk will enter the book fair number with your purchase. Flyers will also be handed out while the band is playing. The donation comes out of Barnes and Noble's profits and is of no cost to you! Its one of the ways Barnes and Noble suppororts non-profit organizations in the community.
Come by to hear us play, find great gifts for family and friends, and support the Band!
The book fair is a national event! Share this story to your friends. Present the flyer at any Barnes and Noble store or use it on-line anytime between December 14 and 19th and Barnes and Noble will make a donation to the Winds in proportion to the amount of your purchase.
