Golden West Winds quintet blows in from Travis Air Force Base for free shows
The Golden West Winds, of the USAF Band of the Golden West, give six free concerts in the Puget Sound region.
You might call it an invasion by bassoon, clarinet, oboe, flute and French horn. This week the Golden West Winds, a woodwind quintet from the USAF Air Force Band of the Golden West, stationed at Travis Air Force Base in California, will be giving half-a-dozen free concerts in the Puget Sound region. The program features Leonard Bernstein's "Candide Overture," Irving Fine's "Partita," works by William Grant Still and Mozart, and "a medley of service songs."
