The Pacific Coast Wind Ensemble, a community band with members from Newport to Florence, has chosen to benefit Coast Watch for their annual spring concert in Newport. Each year the band chooses a worthy non profit to share its concert proceeds. The band uses its share to buy new music and fund scholarships for local music students.
The concert will be on Sunday, March 23rd at 2pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center. There will be a wide variety of concert band music to include marches, musicals, and medleys. Participants will also have the opportunity to enter drawings for several prizes such as a charcoal grill, gift baskets, flowers and more. There will also be a collection box for Lincoln County Food Share.
