San Diego's Premier Community Concert Band and Wind Ensemble
The San Diego Music Consortium is an organization whose members are a collection of professional and amateur musicians of all ages dedicated to:
The SDMC, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that engages audiences and its members playing every genre. Our vision is to have a consortium of ensembles from vocal, jazz, orchestra, to youth ensembles.
Currently we have two large ensembles, the San Diego Wind Ensemble and North County Winds. The San Diego Wind Ensemble rehearses on a six-week schedule and performs quarterly. North County Winds rehearse weekly throughout the year.
Members pay $50/quarter to perform in any number of groups as a means of covering the costs of renting rehearsal and performance space, the purchase of music, directors’ fees, insurance and other operating expenses.
We love making music and sharing that with each other and the community. We are constantly striving to improve as musicians and as an organization; look for ways to give back to the community, local school music programs and students. If that sounds like something you would want to invest time being a part of, then we'd love to have you as a member!
