The Louisville Winds was founded in 2011 by Nan Moore to create an opportunity for adults who love band music to continue playing their instrument in a concert setting. Members of this true community band represent a variety of vocations including; current and retired music educators, attorneys, bankers, and business executives.
In its reasonably short history, this approximately 60-member volunteer ensemble has worked with numerous guest soloists, guest conductors, guest clinicians, and composers. Additionally, Louisville Winds has performed twice at the Kentucky Music Educators Conference and the 2019 Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic.
A community favorite, the ensemble has developed a large following for its annual holiday and summer parks concerts. Louisville Winds charges no admission for concerts, but rather relies upon donations to cover operational expenses.
