The Tennessee Valley Winds is a non-profit, all volunteer, self-supporting community band that has been providing quality musical performances since 1984. The community band experience is unlike school or professional groups. Rarely do amateurs and professionals, young and old, get to work together. The opportunity to learn and grow is unique. The director is more of a guide than an authority figure, and does not assign parts or solos. It is expected that all will help each other by offering suggestions and sharing. Friendships are born of shared work and musical enjoyment.

The purpose and objectives of the TVW are:

  • To make a positive contribution to the musical environment and culture of the Middle Tennessee area.
  • To promote music education through programs, activities, and community outreach events.
  • To provide an opportunity for quality musical experiences and musical growth by the membership.
  • To provide an opportunity for contact and interaction with musicians of advanced proficiency by the membership.
  • To advance the position of the community concert band in America through public performances of quality band literature.

The Tennessee Valley Winds concert is free and open to the public and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, May 22nd.
