Musician Spotlight: Tennessee Wind Symphony
In this month’s installment of Musician Spotlight from MusicAlley.com we look at the work of the Tennessee Wind Symphony.
The Tennessee Wind Symphony – or TWS – has been offering quality symphonic band performances for the people of Tennessee and nearby communities since 1991. But this community concert band has reached beyond its local community. They have performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall in New York to London.
2007 marked a significant achievement for the band, when TWS was awarded the Sudler Silver Scroll from the John Philip Sousa Foundation. This award is the most prestigious award a community concert band can earn, and TWS is the first Tennessee band to do it.
The Tennessee Wind Symphony features a full compliment of wind instruments, including trumpets, tubas, trombones, and horns of all types.

As a non-profit organization, the Tennessee Wind Symphony typically offers admission free concerts at various venues. Their support comes from a variety of donors – both businesses and individuals – who recognize the tremendous talent and dedication of the members of the band.
