The San Antonio Wind Symphony is a group of volunteer musicians who combine their talents and services to provide an opportunity for life-long musical expression and enjoyment; enrich, educate and entertain the general public through live performances; enhance music education in the community by partnering with college, high school and middle school band programs and preserve the cultural history of the wind band repertoire.

The San Antonio Wind Symphony would like to thank everyone who helps us continue our mission of fostering music education for local students for fourteen wonderful years!

Last season featured our debut at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts and our first ever participation in the Big Give SA. This year has featured performances with the Helotes Area Concert Band, concerts at Southwest High School and UTSA.
