In an average year, our hard-working volunteer musicians contribute over 15,000 hours of rehearsals, concerts, and work! In fact, some of our musicians travel up to two hours one way to get to rehearsals. However, we still have to pay for our music, equipment, and maintenance on our instruments, etc. We can only do this with the generous donations made by our community members. Become a Central Florida Winds Sponsor today. Your financial contribution will make a difference in our community! Your name, or the name of your business, will appear in our programs for the remainder of the current calendar year, and any level of donation made to our non-profit organization is tax-deductible.

Central Florida Winds
Our members are quite diverse, ranging from professional players to retired military band members. We typically rehearse Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Rehearsals are held in the Melbourne Municipal Band Room behind the auditorium, 1924 Melody Lane, Melbourne, FL 32902. The rehearsal hall is directly behind the Melbourne Municipal Auditorium. Enter from Fee Avenue, next to the library.
If you are interested in playing with the Central Florida Winds, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted for further instructions.
If you would like to be a part of Central Florida Winds' remarkable music scene, but playing an instrument is not your thing, please email email@example.com and we will help you become a vibrant part of our organization.
Another way to contribute behind the scenes is to join the library team. They handle hundreds of pieces of music each year. Keeping the folders up to date is a monumental task. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help.
