A three-part graphic created to show three scenes of the Heritage Winds. There is a blue border around the outside and between the images. On the left a flue player performs on a wood stage in dark blue mess dress, in the center te full quintet poses with their instruments in blue mess dress, in a room full of white walls and red chairs, and on the right a vocalist sings on stage flanked on either side in the background by wind players or twinkling holiday trees. White text above them all reads "Heritage Winds" in italics.
