Dallas Winds, the nation’s only professional civilian wind band, will be returning to the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center on September 30, 2014 for the debut of their 2014-2015 concert season. Throughout the season they will be offering an exciting new range of wind band shows to appeal to audiences of all ages.
Nine seriously fun shows are on schedule, ranging from “Born in the USA,” a mixture of music from American masters, to “Frankenstein – The Movie!,” a wind band score of the 1931 Frankenstein film, to “Game On!,” a unique performance of video game music featuring Grammy nominated composer Austin Wintory. Other concerts will feature British wind band music, 1930s jazz, a tribute to Leonard Bernstein, a special performance with the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra Wind Symphony, and the annual Christmas and 4th of July shows.
Started in 1985, Dallas Winds is one of the country’s leading wind bands, made up of 50 brass, woodwind, and percussion players. They combine the tradition of a British brass band with the spirit of an American town band to create a unique sound that appeals to young and old alike. Dallas Winds has entertained more than a million people, both at home and on tour, including Queen Elizabeth II. They have also received critical acclaim for their 19 compact discs on the Reference Recordings, Chrystal Records and Klavier Records labels. Dallas Winds is sponsored by Classical 101 FM, and supported in part by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, the Texas Commission of the Arts, TACA and the National Endowment for the Arts.
