in a healthy manner for all.

FSW in concert at the Cubberley Theatre

The Foothill Symphonic Winds (FSW) was formed in 1980. The ensemble performs classical and contemporary works written or transcribed for symphonic wind ensemble or concert band. The aim is to assist the musicians in continuing their musical growth while also providing high-caliber musical entertainment for the community. The FSW was a class offered by Foothill College in Los Altos Hills until all Music Performance classes were cancelled in the summer of 2011. The members of the FSW wanted to continue to operate in its traditional format, except as a non-profit organization. Articles of Incorporation were filed, a Board of Directors elected, and 501(c)(3) tax exempt status granted to the FSW by the IRS.

For the 2019-20 performance year, the FSW will rehearse Wednesday evenings at the Mountain View High School, Packard Hall, 3535 Truman Avenue, Mountain View, CA.

We meet in Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions. Our first rehearsal of the Winter session will be Wednesday, January 8, 2020, beginning at 7:30 PM.  While we don't have a fixed instrumentation, we do have a limit on our total membership for musical and logistical reasons. Musicians interested in joining the ensemble must receive approval from our Music Director (Contact).  Existing members can register for a session or pay dues by using the following link:  Register
