"Musicians in the Military"
Hailing from the United States Air Force Band of the West in San Antonio, Texas, Mission Winds is a clarinet quartet devoted to excellence in performance and musical outreach throughout the Southern United States. As a military music ensemble, Mission Winds seeks to serve diverse communities of all ages by providing engaging concerts and educational outreach from the concert hall to the classroom.
Mission Winds honors our veterans, inspires the public, and connects with communities through their performances at a variety of events such as military and civic ceremonies, public outreach and school concerts. The group supports music education through clinics and master classes to elementary through college-aged students and presents performance tours throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico. Mission Winds have performed at various high schools, elementary schools, middle schools, universities, and have been featured at the Texas Music Educators Association conventions, benefiting both the students and performers.
The members of Mission Winds bring to the United States Air Force many years of professional experience with symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, touring shows, and today's popular artists.
