This week, the board of directors met (virtually) and had to make some tough decisions. Given the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and directives from all levels of government, the board unanimously decided to cancel the remainder of the season for the Oxford Winds and Oxford Breeze.
There will be no further rehearsals, performances, or social gatherings until at least September, 2020. At this point in time, we have every intention of launching a new and amazing season for 2020/2021.
We’re busy working hard to put together our next concert this May – Adventures with the Winds! So get ready to have an adventure with the Oxford Winds! Featuring exciting music that will take you through space and time, around the world, and deep into folklore. You’ll soar, dive, and dance all evening long.
When: May 8th at 7:30pm Where: St David’s United Church, 190 Springbank Ave, Woodstock Tickets: $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Children 12 and under are free.
Part of our mission is to help educate and provide opportunities to musicians in Oxford County. Each year the band recognizes and contributes to the future education of a local student pursuing an education in music with The Oxford Winds Award.
Who’s eligible: All graduating high school students in Oxford County who will be continuing their musical education at the post-secondary level are eligible to apply. Deadline for the 2020 award is April 30th at 5pm.
