Welcome to the Winds Of Faith Community Band web site.

Winds of Faith is a faith-based community band open to all qualified musicians.
(Please view Membership page)

Winds of Faith began in the fall of 2008 as the William Jessup University Community Wind Ensemble and was created to provide a large performance venue for the instrumental students at the university. After developing its own large ensemble, the university ended its relationship between its students and community musicians. With a passion to continue serving our community by providing excellent musical performances, our community musicians reorganized and incorporated in December of 2014, and is affiliated with the Sacramento Valley Symphonic Band Association. This traditional community band includes approximately 40+ musicians from the surrounding communities and ranges in ages 12 to 70+. The band performs a variety of traditional sacred and secular literature reflecting a variety of musical styles and provide the opportunity for qualified musicians to gather, practice, and perform for the glory of God.
