The Pacific Coast Wind Ensemble is a community concert band with members from all up and down the central coast. The band just started rehearsals for the season and noticed a few empty chairs. The band is currently seeking woodwinds, especially flute and clarinet players. Rehearsals are Mondays from 6:30 to 8:30 and alternate between Florence and Waldport high schools. Carpools are available! Pacific Coast Wind Ensemble is an all volunteer non audition band and welcomes beginners and experts alike. The band is scheduled to perform a Christmas concert in Yachats, two larger concerts in Florence and Newport, as well as several other smaller community gigs such as Beachcomber Days in Waldport and Sea of Lights at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
