The Prairie Winds Concert Band
is a regional community band and is a valuable resource to West Central Minnesota. We have members from many towns in and around Willmar, including band directors, students, professional workers and retired adults.

Our year is broken down into 3 seasons.

  1. In the Fall we begin practice in early September and have one or two concerts in November.
  2. In the Winter season we start practice in January and conclude with one or two concerts in March.
  3. Our summer season starts in May with several Monday practices and then 5 concerts in Willmar's Rice Park with sponsorship by Heritage Bank and the West Central Tribune and popcorn provided by Walts Car Wash and water by Willmar Water and Spas.

Our practices are normally held in the Willmar Education and Arts Center at 611 SW 5th St on Monday nights 7-9pm.

If you would like to play with us plese feel free to contact a member of the band or use our Contact Us page.
