The first edition of MBI Winds aims to make a great introduction, a stellar first impression, and turn a chance encounter into a lasting relationship. The 2023 edition of MBI Winds presents: Hello!
Hello is an appropriate introduction of this new ensemble to the world… but it’s more. Think about chance encounters you’ve had that may have changed the trajectory of your life. A greeting is just the beginning…
Musical selections include songs by these popular artists to tell our story:
- Remi Wolf
- Lionel Richie
- Twenty One Pilots
World Hello Day 👋
As it turns out, Monday, November 21st is World Hello Day. It started with an idea in 1973 as an effort to avoid conflict and preserve peace through personal communication. The goal is simple: say “hello” to 10 or more people on that day. As we reconnect coming out of a global pandemic, this lesson seems as appropriate today as it did almost 50 years ago.
We encourage you to say “hello” on Monday, November 21st, and then again to our members and staff when you see MBI Winds at show near you.
There’s still a few openings at MBI Winds in the following sections: Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Baritone, and Tuba.
Minnesota Brass was founded on an idea of all-age pageantry and that holds true with Independent Winds. But winds offers the opportunity for all instruments – even if it’s been a while since you’ve played, most accomplished high school and college musicians will find that the muscle memory of these instruments is still there, we’ll help you dust it off!

[…] Before we get into Mixer Hell I want to talk about what is currently consuming my life: MBI Winds. It’s a brand new WGI Winds ensemble put on by Minnesota Brass – sort of like an indoor marching band, but just the horn line. Our first contest is in one month and we still have open positions for flute, clarinet, saxophone, baritone & tuba.
