Welcome to Stroud Area Wind Orchestra’s website.  We are a wind orchestra based in Stroud, Gloucestershire.  The orchestra was founded by the current Musical Director David Smith and Chairman Jenny Mainwaring in 2016.

We welcome players of all woodwind, brass and percussion instruments.  If you are interested in playing with the band, booking us for an event, or have any questions, please feel free to contact us using the links at the top of this page.

We are planning to launch an Outreach Programme in September 2018.  This will be aimed at children and adults who are just starting to learn a musical instrument or want to get back into playing.  Further information on this programme can be obtained from Stroud Area Winds Music Academy website.
