Spectrum Winds

Spectrum Winds, a component of the United States Air Force Band of the West, brings the highest standards of musical excellence to its audiences with a passion to honor our past heroes, inspire the present generation, communicate the Air Force story, and recruit future generations of Airmen. Composed of six world-class musicians, Spectrum Winds explores the diverse world of chamber music for winds and percussion, exposing audiences to traditional woodwind quintet literature, Latin, jazz, Celtic and more.

The inherent versatility of Spectrum Winds enables it to draw on a long heritage of chamber music from Mozart and Beethoven moving forward to contemporary jazz and pop music, marches and patriotic favorites. Capitalizing on this flexibility, Spectrum Winds provides entertainment at a multitude of venues to include official military ceremonies and functions, educational outreach at elementary and junior high schools, recruiting concerts at high schools and college campuses, and outreach engagements in our local communities.
