About Our Groups
Onslow Winds Inc. consists of two ensembles - the Onslow Winds Community Band and the Onslow Winds Jazz Ensemble
Onslow Winds Community Band
The Onslow Winds Community Band is a group for people who play a concert band instrument and wish to perform great music for the local community. Our musicians include teachers, military spouses and service members, retirees, high school and college students, and other members of the community. Everyone is welcome at Onslow Winds!
We perform primarily during the summer months and around the holidays. Our musical selections include patriotic tunes, marches, movie and Broadway themes, classical arrangements, and other crowd pleasers. Please see the Concerts page for a list of upcoming performances.
The group rehearses March-August and November-December. Rehearsals are held at the Southwest High School band room. Join us now!
Onslow Winds Jazz Ensemble
The Onslow Winds Jazz Ensemble was formed in June 2016. It is a smaller ensemble with a traditional big-band format. The group performs jazz classics such as "In the Mood" and other popular big-band tunes.
Onslow Winds Jazz Ensemble performs at community events throughout the area. Past performances include the Sneads Ferry Shrimp Festival, the Onslow Empty Bowls Project and Winterfest. We also perform in conjunction with the community band at certain performances.
The group rehearses weekly at Southwest High School. For more information about the Jazz Ensemble, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
