Tonight’s performers–Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble

Commitment to Hampton Roads Arts and Education
Among arts and cultural organizations, The Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble leads by example, demonstrating a resolute commitment to the community, the musical arts and schools throughout Hampton Roads.
Our mission is simple – We seek to provide excellence in three areas: the musical arts, education, and community leadership.

Mission: The Mission of the Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble is to provide quality American wind music and promote adult bands in Hampton Roads and neighboring communities. We endeavor to accomplish this by offering high quality performances that engage and inspire all our listeners.

History: In 1998, local Virginia musicians Robert Arledge and (the late) Jim Paschall formed The Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble to allow the many exceptional local amateur, professional and semi-professional musicians to perform and share their musical expertise with the local community. Outstanding high school student musicians are particularly welcomed and allowed to hone their talents as they pursue a passion they will be able to enjoy the rest of their lives. One of the band’s traditions is to provide scholarships to deserving graduating student musicians that participate. Since inception, the Ensemble has become the Peninsula’s premier community-based performing group, currently including over 60 musicians and focusing on symphonic works. Approximately six performances are offered to the public at various venues on the Virginia Peninsula. The band operates as a non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.
