Krampus and Carols is still on!

Despite the winter storm, the main roads are clear and the secondary roads are clearing. The concert, Krampus and Carols, will go on today as scheduled at 3:00pm. We will delay the warmup to 2:00pm and the setup to 12:45pm. Please make your own determination as to your personal commute. Also, keep in mind your commute back home will occur after the concert is over around 4:30.

When you drive to the performing arts center, it would be better to turn left onto Southwinds and right onto Highway 170. A left turn onto Hunter, Highway 170, would be onto a secondary winding hilly road.

Rehearsal change Monday, November 14th

We will have to *change* our rehearsal location on Monday, November 14th, due to a Farmington School Board meeting in the PAC building. We are too large to fit in the old bandroom, so that rehearsal will be in the commons area of the Randall G. Lynch Middle School, 359 Rheas Mill Road, in Farmington. This link https://goo.gl/maps/HJV3YJUb5ZL2 is a google maps link you can use for directions. Those of you who have been in the Winds for a while will remember we’ve rehearsed at this location in the past. The street name is pronounced “raise mill road”.
