History

The all-volunteer Waterloo Wind Band was established by internationally acclaimed composer and arranger Randol A. Bass with the assistance of Myra Klinksiek and originated as the Dripping Springs Concert Band. That group disbanded in the fall of 2011 due to rehearsal space issues, but quickly re-formed in South Austin, which proved to be more accessible to area musicians. The band grew rapidly and attracted more instrumentalists. Renamed the Waterloo Wind Band, its story resembled the life cycle of the mystical phoenix, which became the group’s unofficial mascot.Unique and rich musical experiences are provided for musicians and audiences alike. Musicians are challenged to play a wide variety of music for ensembles: concert band music, marches, orchestral transcriptions, jazz, movie and theater music.
