About the Cumberland Winds

The Cumberland Winds welcomes you!

We exist to promote quality musical performances with a wide variety of ensembles. Our goal is to create an environment that fosters music in the greater Cumberland River area through public concerts, musical support of private events, musical training, and master classes.


What we do and who we are:

The Cumberland Winds is made up of a large number of musicians who perform in a variety of groups in diverse venues. This musical organization, located in Clarksville, TN, provides quality live performances to the greater Montgomery county area. The musical groups consist of a concert band, big band, dixie band, jazz combo, brass quintet, woodwind quintet, and include a number of solo instrumentalists.

  • The Cumberland Winds Concert Band is a community band that performs a variety of traditional and popular musical styles including show tunes and music from movie scores.
  • The Jazz Project specializes in performing music from the big band area.
  • The Jazz Combo and the Dixie Band perform jazz standards and dixieland style music.
  • The Brass and Woodwind Quintets perform standard quintet repertoire and popular music.
  • The solo instrumentalists including our harpist, perform at special events that are limited in space and have an intimate setting.

Through our fundraising efforts, the Cumberland Winds is also able to sponsor scholarships for local high school students for private instrumental instruction through the Community School of the Arts at Austin Peay State University.
