The Festival is sponsored by a non-profit organization, the East Winds Symphonic Band Association. The first festival was partially funded by monies received from the WQED-FM/Dominion Volunteer In The Arts (VITA) award. A committee of leaders active with community bands in the area volunteer their time to put together and run the festival each year, including raising the necessary funds.
Other volunteers perform a number of tasks on the day of the event, including:
- distribution of tickets
- distribution of programs
- refreshment preparation
- stage preparation
If you are interested in volunteering, you can email us at festival @ ewsb.org.
Monies are spent on items such as publicity, refreshments, facilities, music, and printing costs. If you wish to donate money to help us defray our costs, you can attend the festival and put your donation in our donation box or send us a check. The check should be made out to the “Three Rivers Community Band Festival”. Checks can be mailed to:
