40th Anniversary Season
We will be marking our 40th Anniversary season with celebratory music throughout the year.
The holiday season is upon us. Take a break from shoping and come hear the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble play your favorite tunes of the season. We start things off with one of Austin's great traditions, the Zilker Tree Lighting on Sunday November 30. We start playing at 5:30PM. The tree will be lit around 6:00PM and then we will play some more. Come on out and take a spin under the tree!
Later in December we will have two more concerts.
November 30, 5:30PM Zilker Tree Lighting
December 13, 7:30PM at St. Louis Catholic Church
December 19, 7:30PM at Covenant United Methodist Church
Best Excuse to Be a Band Geek Again--Austin Chronicle
Austin Civic Wind Ensemble
One time, at band camp, we heard about this great group of musicians in A-town: As Austin's oldest community band, the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble (ACWE) has been charming Central Texas audiences since 1975. Besides treating our town to the best in-concert band performances, this ensemble also provides an outlet for Austin area musicians, amateur and professional, to get out there and play. So, whether you are looking to rekindle fond memories of your band-geek glory days or you wish to simply revel in that sound that takes you to another time and place, check them out. Their Web site is loaded with information on how to get involved. (Best of Austin 2006 issue)
