Message Board

If you were not aware, this year we have a new Board for the TSWS! All of the positions are filled with the exception of Librarian and Grant Writer. We can substitute for Librarian, and we have been getting along alright this season. But we really need a good grant writer, as grants are available and need applying now. If you are interested in either of these positions, please send a letter or email of application. If you know someone (not required to be a band member; may be a person who appreciates live music) who may be interested, please pass this information along. Thank you!

Here's where to click to read the NWS forecast for Dubuque, IA for today. Remember that you can always look at the TSWS WX Page for up-to-the-minute forecasts.

Concert set-up people, please show up at 6pm for concert set-up! We need help with unloading percussion, setting up chairs and stands, and sound system set-up. Thank you for your invaluable assistance!

Do your decent person thing for the day and plan to stay late to help put away afterwards. Many hands make light work! Everybody should at least be putting away their own. Percussion will need help loading into the vehicles after the concert.

Music sorters are needed after concerts, and for final put-away at the end of July. Can you volunteer? Talk to Kare Arnold or email her at Thank you.

Remind your friends and family about the concert, and suggest they come early and bring a picnic!

WE DID IT! Many thanks to members of the Tri-State Wind Symphony for a very successful opening concert last night. It was a personal joy. --Brian Hughes, Founder & Conductor 6.1.2017
