Mission Statement and Organization
One of the regions most established wind groups, The Ramsey Wind Symphony is a volunteer organization that provides opportunities for qualified individuals to renew, maintain and develop their interests and talents in the performing arts by participating in a positive and uplifting musical environment. Since its inception on December 19, 1986, the Ramsey Wind Symphony has served Northern Jersey and Rockland and surrounding communities for more than two decades, playing a wide range of repertoire of traditional and popular music for many who would otherwise be unable to access such an experience. The season is comprised of regular Wednesday evening rehearsals, and a series of indoor and outdoor concerts, including the annual Ramsey Fourth of July Celebration and Ramsey Day (a festive/carnival day celebrating the end of the summer in Ramsey). The Ramsey Wind Symphony focuses on love of music, craft, enthusiasm, constancy of commitment and effort, the highest possible artistic excellence, and a desire to share the joy of music. The Wind Symphony strives to create an atmosphere of accessibility within the community, warmth, challenge and encouragement for its participants, and audience. We invite all who love intensely inspiring and expressive live symphonic music to join us in our pursuits.
Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm.
