Welcome from the Tri-state wind symphony!
Players: Please check the Message Board for updates on concert calls and weather-related information.
The TSWS concert this evening, our "Star-Spangled Spectacular!", June 30, 2016, will be conducted by Rod Matthews and held at our alternate rain site, WESTMINSTER PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH on the corner of University and Loras in Dubuque. The weather may be fine, but we have a 40% chance of thunderstorms, and who wants to sit in the rain? Please join us and Legion Post 6 for live music at the Westminster Presbyterian Church this evening for a dry and cool concert!
If you just can't get enough live music, don't forget that there are concerts even on the Thursdays that the TSWS isn't playing! Check the Current Concert Season to see who's playing this week.
Dubuque is not the only Eastern Iowa city to have live music in the summer! There are many municipal bands regionally, and TSWS members are playing with one of them this summer: The Bettendorf Park Band. You can join us on Friday, July 22, 2016 at 7:30pm at Veteran's Memorial Park, 1645 - 23rd Street in Bettendorf for an evening of great music!
Do you have a dusty clarinet in the closet from college days? Are you a high school student who wants to keep your chops over the summer? Do you want to play an instrument with your family members? You are all welcome to join the Tri-State Wind Symphony for summer concerts at Eagle Point Park. Rehearsals begin on May 24, 2016 and continue every Tuesday at 7 pm at the University of Dubuque's Heritage Center through July 26th. There are no auditions. The only requirement is that you are a middle school student or older (some of us are much older!) or able to play moderately advanced pieces. We look forward to seeing you!
Our concerts can be viewed again on our video link at http://tsws.dubuquevideo.com/ Jennifer Tigges Video Creations or on Mediacom Community Access Channel 81 or Digital Channel 85.4. So if you miss one, you can catch up!
