About This Project

The Florida Wind Band now needs YOU to be able to move forward with our newest project!  We are currently raising funds for a special CD recording project.  This CD will serve as a major contribution to contemporary wind band recordings and a warm tribute to our friends in the arts community of Tampa Bay.  The finished CD will be offered for sale, supporting the Florida Wind Band as we strive to increase our educational outreach to our local schools and beyond. 

Geodes: Hidden Gems & Precious Diamonds will be a unique blend of masterworks that have not gotten the attention they deserve (Hidden Gems) and new band works that are destined to be the next band music classics (Precious Diamonds). We hope you will help us with this endeavor.
