Winds Of Faith To Celebrate 10th Concert Season

Winds of Faith, a Community Concert Band, will begin celebrating its 10th Concert Season this September.  Upcoming concert plans include performances throughout the greater Sacramento area for churches, schools, community centers, and the band’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Concert.

Winds of Faith began in Fall of 2008 as the William Jessup University Community Band. The band has provided performance opportunities for music students at William Jessup University and for instrumentalists of all ages from Colfax, Auburn, Folsom, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks, Rocklin, Roseville and Lincoln. Becoming a separate entity in 2014, Director Van Crane has followed his passion to continue serving our community by providing musical performances featuring excellent community musicians with concerts in Auburn, Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville and the extended greater Sacramento area. Winds of Faith provides skilled musicians with the opportunity to gather, practice, and perform sacred and secular music for the Glory of God. Currently, there are openings for Oboe, French Horn, Percussion, Bass and Contra Bass Clarinet, and String Bass. Qualified student musicians are also encouraged to join with the permission of their band directors.

Beginning September 12th, Winds of Faith will rehearse Tuesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. at Olympus Junior High School (2625 La Croix Dr., Roseville). For more information about hosting a concert or joining the ensemble, contact Van Crane at vcrane@windsoffaith.com or phone: (707) 363-1679.
