“Remembering Sandy Weber” Sandy joined the Winds’ clarinet section during its fledging years and was a member and manager for many years. Her daughter Elana Weber and conductor Veres will be performing a clarinet duet by Mendelssohn; well known Tucsonan clarinetist John Snavely joins us to play the music of Artie Shaw. ASW musician Matt Stout will pick up the baton to lead the band in the exciting “Choral and Shakers Dance”.
The Arizona Symphonic Winds, under the direction of László Veres, is Southern Arizona’s Premiere community concert band. Comprised of 65 volunteers, this musical organization presents concerts in the Tucson area and has been doing so for over twenty-three years. Included in its repertoire are Broadway show tunes, orchestral transcriptions, movie themes, marches, and traditional band literature. The Winds performs an average of sixteen concerts yearly including our outdoor series at Udall Park, a winter/spring indoor series at Catalina Foothills High School as well as extending our performances to the communities of SaddleBrooke and Oro Valley. The band frequently showcases both professional and amateur soloists as well as talented young performers at its concerts and continues an old American tradition of the free concert in the park for our community.
