The Ohio Capital Winds, a champion of wind ensemble music, performs classic repertoire from masters such as Holst, Sousa, Grainger, and Ohio's own Henry Fillmore. The musicianship of the ensemble's 30+ professional and semi-professional players is its hallmark. Concert programs appeal to a wide range of tastes, taking audiences on a journey that blends exuberant crescendos with moments of quiet contemplation. Mission of the Ohio Capital Winds:
