We are an ensemble of experienced wind musicians, based in Oneonta, NY, who enjoy rehearsing and performing the great works for band. All of us (including the conductor) are volunteers interested in improving our skills and presenting high-quality, free concerts to the community. We also do outreach programs with local schools and colleges.

We welcome new players who have performance experience and are comfortable with Grades 4-6 concert band literature.  We are especially interested in additions to the clarinet, saxophone (baritone), French horn, euphonium, tuba and percussion sections. 

Our season is September to May.

We gratefully acknowledge generous support from the Future for Oneonta Foundation, the Dewar Foundation, the NYSCA Decentralization Grants Program administered by the Chenango Arts Council, Oneonta High School, Hartwick College, the DCMO and ONC BOCES Arts in Education Program, and many individual donors.
