All Instruments, All-age, All Inclusive
For over 75 years Minnesota Brass has been the home for brass players to continue their marching careers after marching band and junior corps. WGI Winds presents an opportunity for brass and woodwind players to perform in an indoor environment during the winter.
As is part of the Minnesota Brass tradition, MBI Winds is an independent group and is open to all ages.
Staff for this new ensemble includes:
- Justin Foell
- Amanda Mastrian
- Eric Molho
- Tyler Shipe
- Randy Salas
- Ward Miller
Our instructional staff is coming in with a growth mindset. MBI Winds is a piece of a bigger puzzle to make winds a thing in Minnesota. We’ll be joining River Valley Sound and Maverick Machine Winds in Minnesota Percussion Association competitions. And this is just the beginning…
Join us to experience WGI
After MPA finals we’ll travel to Dayton, Ohio to compete on the national stage. Member dues will include travel to Dayton, hotel stay, and tickets to WGI world class percussion finals.
The season kicks off on Saturday, November 5th, 9am at Westwood Intermediate School in Blaine. People of all levels of previous marching experience are welcome to attend. Register today and you’ll receive more information about MBI Winds. We look forward to this new tradition at Minnesota Brass.
