Sunday, July 16, 2023 -
12:00pm to 8:00pm
Winds at the Winery - Community Band Festival - benefitting The YSU Foundation Dr. Stephen L. Gage Memorial Scholarship

We are delighted to announce that the 6th Annual Winds at the Winery Community Band Festival has be scheduled for July 16, 2023! Spend a summer afternoon at the winery and enjoy several local community bands. Food, wine, and beer will be available for purchase while performances by several local bands will take place throughout the afternoon, starting at 1.

Funds will be raised to benefit the YSU Foundation Dr. Stephen L. Gage Memorial Scholarship.

Food will be available for purchase from the Winery and Monaco's Food Truck. Wine and beer will also be available for purchase from the winery. You may bring your own food and soft drinks, however Ohio law prohibits anyone from bringing alcoholic beverages onto Winery property. Picnic tables and chairs will be available on a first come first serve basis, but you are welcome to bring lawn chairs or blankets and sit on the lawn.

Dr. Gage had a profound influence on so many of us and the music world was stunned by his passing earlier this year. Many members of the bands performing today were students of Dr. Gage and our directors both studied conducting with him. Throughout his career he not only told his students to "Love Music", but he truly lived that motto himself.

As members of community bands, many of us are in professions other than music. We play because we truly love music. We hope you'll spend the day with us celebrating our love of music and an amazing teacher. Proceeds from our raffle, bake sale, and donations will support the scholarship fund at YSU in Dr. Gage's memory.
