The Fillmore Wind Band
The Fillmore Wind Band, founded in 2010, is Greater Cincinnati’s premier volunteer wind band and official namesake of Cincinnati native and march king, Henry Fillmore. The ensemble has been a featured performance group at the 2013 and 2016 Ohio Music Educators Association Conference, 2014 International Women's Brass Conference, and the 2015 Kentucky Music Educators Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. In the short history of the ensemble, the group has been instrumental in advancing and premiering new works for band.
The Fillmore Wind Band consists of professional and semi-professional musicians from throughout the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area and includes diverse representation of careers including teachers, professors, pilots, lawyers, doctors, nurses, bankers, and students. Rehearsing 3-4 times per concert cycle, the group performs four concerts a year. Members of The Fillmore Wind Band receive no compensation for participating and choose to play with the group for their own love and passion for music.
