Michigan Winds Symphonic Concert Ensemble

This Ensemble is for You!

Gary Griffin
Welcome to southeast Michigan's newest ensemble!  In keeping with our twenty year tradition of excellence, NHME is proud to sponsor the formation of The Michigan Winds Symphonic Concert Ensemble!  

Are you:
  • An area musician without an ensemble to play with during the fall and winter months?
  • An alumni ready for new challenges and for greater musical growth?
  • A current music student that just can't get enough musical enjoyment in a week?
  • An instrument doubler desiring more playtime on a secondary or tertiary instrument?  
Then this is the ensemble for you!

Under the direction of Mr. Gary Griffin, an active Tecumseh musician holding a master's degree in music, the Michigan Winds Symphonic Concert Ensemble meets Saturday mornings from 9:30am to 11:00am at the Donald S. Dobrosky Sr. & Katherine O. Johnson Community Resource Center (the former Tecumseh Grange, #166) located at 909 Burt Street in Tecumseh (map here).  

We will hold our first rehearsal of the season on Saturday, September 14th, 9:30am to 11:00am in Tecumseh.

The Michigan Winds Symphonic Concert Ensemble will be preparing for a featured, joint concert performance with National Homeschool Music Ensembles' Winter Concert on Tuesday, December 17th, 7:00pm, at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts.  More information regarding call times, uniform dress, and concert details will be promulgated at rehearsal. 

We're aiming for an enjoyable and rewarding experience together while promoting the finest musicianship the tri-county area has to offer.  A suggested support amount of $15 per month will be used to keep the lights lit bright and to purchase new scores and more music!

Ready to start playing?  Grab your horn, let us know your coming if possible by filing a contact form, and drop on by Saturday morning!

 Why not [...] a Symphonic Band Concert Ensemble which has the stated purpose of being the finest wind ensemble in the world?  You might say, “You’re dreaming, Doby!”  I am, and that’s OK.  Remember, NHME started with a dream, and look at where we ended up. [...]  If there was one thought I would leave with my students, it is: never lose your ability to dream!
