If you intend to listen from within your car:

  • Those with COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, shortness of breath, etc.) should not attend.
  • Each household should be in a separate car; carpooling does not comply with social distancing.

  1. We want to thank you for the concert tonight. It was wonderful to hear live music, and you were creative in finding ways to play while still being safe and following Covid-19 guidelines. The small groups worked well – Flutistry was great, and the saxophone duo was incredibly “together”!

    Will look forward to the next concert.

  2. […] The Winona Municipal Band is holding a performance on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. This will be a new format for the band and audience members to provide live music in a safe and responsible manner! The band will be smaller and include some small group performances by sections or members of the Municipal Band! We hope all who can safely join us choose to do so! Please review our safety procedures at: winonamunicipalband.org/audience-safety-procedures/ […]
