A Unique Concert Band
The Metropolitan Wind Symphony was Founded by Jerry Gardner in 1971, and was awarded the prestigious 2015 Sudler Silver Scroll Award for Community Concert Bands by the John Philip Sousa Foundation. Our organization is made up of over 60 talented woodwind, brass, and percussion instrumentalists who audition for membership and seating. MetWinds makes a significant contribution to the cultural life of the Greater Boston community by providing its audiences with high quality concerts and its members with opportunities for musical growth. MetWinds presents formal performances of traditional and contemporary wind band literature, as well as more informal pops concerts throughout the metropolitan Boston area.
Virtual Music Projects
While we can't make music in person, we are still thinking of ways to engage with our community! We are excited to announce two online music projects that will take the place of our normal winter/spring concert season.More MetWinds Virtual Programming
