40th Anniversary Season
We will be marking our 40th Anniversary season with celebratory music throughout the year.
We just wrapped up a sucessful series of Fall concerts. Thanks to all who attended. Some ACWE members showed up on a cold morning to perform in the Veteran's Day parade in downtown Austin. On November 25 our spinoff group, Polka Pati and Wee Wees, will perform at the HEB Feast of Sharing at the Palmer Events Center.
Meanwhile, we are busy preparing for our holiday concerts.

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)
