From CPW Director & Founder, Christopher Yee
It is with great excitement that I invite you all to a special (FREE) concert on Sunday, December 17 – 6:00 PM at the Cedar Park High School PAC!
In 2007, I co-founded (with Manuel San Luis) a community band of band directors and local professional musicians, the Cedar Park Winds. The ensemble was created to provide two FREE concerts for Austin-area music students and their families each school year.
Over the years, the band has grown in both size and quality and we’re excited to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with a performance at the prestigious Midwest Clinic International Band and Orchestra Conference in Chicago, Illinois later this month! Only 4 community bands world-wide were selected by the Midwest Clinic to perform this year and we’re deeply honored to represent the great state of Texas and the city of Cedar Park on this international stage.
To prepare for our trip, we’re giving a “Send-Off Concert” at CPHS on Sunday, December 17 @ 6:00 PM We’d LOVE to see all of you! Admission is FREE, donations welcome.
We rehearse every Thursday evening from 7:30-9:15 PM in hopes of sharing our music with the students we teach and their families. This will be my first Cedar Park Winds concert as a Cedar Park band director and I’m hopeful to share with you this endeavor that is near and dear to my heart.
I hope to see you all there!
