The Empire Wind Ensemble was formed in June 2016 to provide an opportunity for lifelong musical expression and enjoyment, to promote artistic enrichment in the Inland Empire, and preserve the rich repertoire and cultural history of the wind band. The band is comprised of a collection of talented, dedicated musicians who combine a love of music with a desire to help others work together to achieve their highest musical potential. Approximately 35 Inland Empire musicians will play in the concert.
