About Us

In 2003, a small group of local musicians met with the idea of creating a Symphonic Wind Band, comprised of some of the finest musicians in Bakersfield. The result is The Bakersfield Winds. With the goal of striving for excellence in wind band performance, the group consists of many local music educators. We truly believe that Kern County's strong heritage of outstanding school music program is vital to our young people. The Bakersfield Winds is a unique ensemble in that within the band, there is no chair order and parts may rotate from piece to piece.
