Our Next Concert
A Star-Spangled Celebration!”
Thursday, July 4, 2013
Los Gatos High School front lawn
Edward C. Harris, conductor
Help celebrate our nation’s birthday with a good, old-fashioned concert in the park. Join SJWS for an afternoon of marches, popular tunes and patriotic songs, capped off by a rousing Stars and Stripes Forever. This concert is free, so arrive early with blankets, chairs and plenty of sunscreen.
Sponsored in part by the Town of Los Gatos and the Los Gatos Recreation department.
SJWS Seeks Percussion Players
The San Jose Wind Symphony is currently holding open auditions at Obi Studios in San Jose. We are especially interested in accomplished percussionists who can play a variety of percussion instruments.
SJWS is a “by audition” group that performs approximately 6–9 concerts per 10-month season. Rehearsals are on Tuesday night in the South Bay. Musicians playing with the SJWS enjoy a wide variety of challenging music for Wind Symphony and perform with world-renowned soloists like Jim Walker, Marty Erickson, Joe Alessi and Dale Clevenger.

Watch SJWS at the Midwest Clinic
One of the highlights of our 2009-2010 season was our trip to the 2009 Midwest Clinic in Chicago, culminating in our performance at McCormick Place West on December 18, 2009.
The Midwest folks have been kind enough to publish these three selections from our performance:
Carnival, by Paul Basler
Hold This Boy and Listen, by Carter Pann
Centennial Fanfare-March, by Roger Nixon
