Founded in 2007, the Cedar Park Winds Community Band has been providing FREE concerts for Austin-area music students and their families for the past 10 years. Elementary music teachers, middle school & high school band directors, and local professional musicians/private lesson teachers make up roughly 90 percent of the band. Their passion for enriching the lives of their students through performance has caused the band to grow rapidly in both quantity and quality. Recently, CPW applied to perform at the prestigious Midwest International Band and Orchestra Conference and has been invited! The Midwest Clinic is the largest instrumental music education conference in the world! It is held annually in Chicago, Illinios during the month of December. We would love your help to fund our trip. With plane flights, hotel reservations, equipment trucks, concert programs, music commissions, and other associated expenses, any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
