Here Come the Santa Ana Winds!
The world renown Santa Ana Winds Youth Band provides solid musical education to America's youths. We proudly hold the title of Official Ambassadors of Music for Orange County.
We are a competitive band performing in parades around California, America, and the World. We accept musicians ages 14-21 from all over Southern California. We are headquartered in the city of Santa Ana and have representatives from nearly every high school and college in Orange County, plus many who travel far distances to attend.
We accept brass, woodwinds, percussionists, colorguard, majorettes, or anyone wanting to march and carry a banner. The only requirement is to be between the ages of 14-21, have a basic knowledge of music and/or marching, and the determination to strive for the best you can become as a musician, dancer, flag twirler, and person!
With a 37+ year tradition and many appearances in the Hollywood Christmas Parade, the Rose Parade, and two-time national fieldshow champions, the Santa Ana Winds has become a highly-visible icon of Orange County and the youth musicians of California.
Mission Statement: The Santa Ana Winds Youth Band is an educational arts program dedicated to providing the youth of our community with the means to develop life skills, musical skills, and performance skills, build character and foster teamwork while cultivating the talents of the leaders of tomorrow.
We rehearse on Monday nights from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Fees are, and have always been, only $10 a month!
