Gulf Coast Wind Ensemble Searching For A New Director

A band that has existed on the Coast for 40 years, now has a new name. The Community Band is now known as The Gulf Coast Wind Ensemble.

Sunday, the band held a concert at the Jeff Davis Campus of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Despite the name change, they still play a large variety of music - from swing and show tunes, to light classical. The group is made up of musicians of all different experience levels from all across South Mississippi. The one thing they share is a love of music.

The group is looking for a new band director, and always welcomes new members. They rehearse at Cowan Road Baptist Church every Tuesday at 7-9pm, and anyone is invited to join. Or you may call (228) 229-6590 for more information.
