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.



The Winds of Faith, a community concert band based in Rocklin has successfully completed its Tenth Concert Season under the direction of Van Crane.  In Season 11, Winds of Faith will be performing some of the great band music of our era—marches, show tunes, classics, and other traditional music for the enjoyment of audiences in Rocklin, Roseville, Lincoln and Sacramento.

Since 2008, Winds of Faith has expanded to include both adult musicians and qualified student musicians. Director Crane recently commented, “I’m very happy with the current membership but there is always room for more qualified musicians.”  Crane is especially looking for those who play the Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Bass Clarinet, French Horn, and Percussion.

Band rehearsals begin on Tuesday, September 11th from 7-9 pm at Olympus Junior High School (2625 La Croix Dr, Roseville, CA  95661). Rehearsals will continue each Tuesday evening through the end of May, 2019.

Winds of Faith, a Community Concert Band, is a non-profit organization and a member of the Sacramento Valley Symphonic Band Association.  For more information, visit Winds of Faith on Facebook, or email our director, Van Crane.
