The Florida Symphonic Winds
is a special adhoc/ one-off band that brings the Florida sunshine to music lovers, through fun, fellowship, sightseeing, and live music. 

Retreats, Tours and Workshops are open to woodwind, brass and percussion players (subject to instrumentation balance), their families and friends, and members of the Dunedin Music Society. Performers from anywhere in the country are invited to participate, too - discounts for high school and college students, and DMS Members.

Whether one day, a three-day weekend, or a 10-day trip around Florida, our nation and beyond, enjoy excellent accommodation, food and downtime as we explore repertoire and culture.



Spend half a day or a full day exploring one specific piece of repertoire.

Weekend Retreats

From Friday to Sunday, explore big concert band repertoire such as symphonies, including compositional & historical context, as well as fun facts about the composer - maybe even meet them in person! Lots of downtime to explore the area, shop for music supplies, and spend quality time with fellow musicians. 

Weekend retreats always end with a public performance.


As the Florida Symphonic Winds represents Florida, we believe it's important that Floridians know who we are! Local tours include a bus trip around the State performing in major cities and connecting local communities with each other.

However, the Dunedin Music Society also has a national presence, so other tours might include bus, plane and/ or train rides through one or more States in the USA, joining local bands and choirs in their local concerts and festivals.

But, of course, the most exciting kind of tours are the ones where we get to experience completely different cultures, perhaps even with very different expectations of community music, and almost certainly a language barrier! Foreign tours might include Europe, the UK, South America, and possibly Asian countries like Japan and Malaysia - both huge concert band communities.
