Welcome to the Lowcountry Wind Symphony. In its brief history, the LWS has begun to explore and perform some of the wonderful music written and transcribed for concert band. The 2015-16 performance season promises exciting and entertaining programs and we look forward to sharing great music with audiences throughout the area.
The initial organizational planning for the LWS began in June, 2014 with the formation of a Planning Committee and a belief there is a wealth of talent in Beaufort and vicinity interested in performing in a traditional band setting.
The call for musicians was answered—slowly at first, but as you will see and hear, quite enthusiastically. Musicians from throughout the area—Beaufort, Bluffton, Dataw Island, Hilton Head and Parris Island—came to an initial general meeting in September 2014. Now numbering 50 musicians, the growth has been steady and gratifying.
