Next Concert & Art Auction

  October 21, 2018 -- "Autumn Impressions"


The Southwest Washington Wind Symphony opens its 14th season with "Autumn Impressions" at 3:00 pm on Sunday, October 21, at the Union High School Performing Arts Center.  Inspired by the painting "September Hut" by artist Sheep Jones, conductor Patrick Murphy has selected a program of beautiful and spirited works including "Scarecrow Overture" by Joseph Turrin, "Under the Willow" by Julie Giroux, and "Night on Fire" by John Mackey. 


Concertgoers are encouraged to arrive early to view "September Hut" and other original oil paintings by Keith Lindberg, Carole Watanabe, and Marianne Kolb at a silent auction to benefit the wind symphony.  The paintings were donated by the Give Art Foundation, a nonprofit managed by well-known local art philanthropists Grace Teigen and Gene Wigglesworth. Additional art will be silently auctioned during our 2018-2019 season.


The Southwest Washington Wind Symphony is a 50-musician, professional quality concert band organized in 2005.  Concerts are free and open to the public.  The Performing Arts Center at Union High School is located at 6201 NW Friberg-Strunk Street in Camas.  Doors open at 2:30 pm.
