Support the Twin Ports Wind Orchestra

When you support the Twin Ports Wind Orchestra, you help us continue our mission of providing a quality musical forum for musicians in the Twin Ports area to perform exceptional concert band literature for the community. We are very appreciative of all the contributions we have received over the past 27 years. Here are some of the ways our community has benefited:

  • The TPWO performs 6 professional quality concerts per year.
  • Throughout the year we offer area high school students the unique educational opportunity to perform with us through our Honors Musician Program. The program helps foster our future musicians passion for music and learning by immersing them within the TPWO to share a music making experience with some of the Northland’s finest musicians.
  • Our Guest Artist Series brings in professional composers, conductors, instrumentalists and vocalists to the Twin Ports from all around the world. Not only do these world-renowned artists join us on stage, but we have also brought them around the community and into the local schools to work with area students.
  • Before our concert we host our Meet the Conductor series where we provide a chance for the audience to talk with the conductor about the particular pieces they will hear as well as give a historical context to the time in which they were written. It is also a chance to meet with our guest artists and composers
  • As part of our service to the community, we have expanded our outreach program to include several small groups within the TPWO that go out and perform several times a year at area nursing homes, churches and other events.

Please join us in continuing this legacy with your support for our 28th season.  Your generosity will ensure this ongoing success story of Making Beautiful Music in the Northland.
