The Northwinds Symphonic Band was organized in 1984 as a performance outlet for adult musicians, primarily music educators, in the north Georgia area. It occurred to Ron Evans, founder of the ensemble, that many band directors and music teachers in the area were performing musicians on the instrument they studied.
The ensemble has performed for the Georgia Music Educators on five different occasions, and it continues to perform a series of concerts throughout the year.
The Northwinds Symphonic Band is now led by Mercer Crook and the roster includes band directors, both active and retired, music teachers, college students, professional musicians and several players who pursue an occupation outside the field of music.
