Mission:

The Maryland Wind Festival brings wind chamber music to western Maryland each summer through high level performances, educational opportunities, and commissioning projects led by an ensemble of young classical musicians from around the world.


Who We Are:

The Maryland Wind Festival, or MWF, is a chamber music project based in the communities of Frederick and Hagerstown. We seek to enrich our community through high-quality performances of wind chamber music, educational programs, and commissioning projects. Frederick serves as an ideal setting for us as a growing city with a vibrant cultural scene and diverse audiences.

Hailing from nine states and three countries, our passionate faculty artists bring their love for performance and years of instrumental teaching together for an intensive week of concerts and educational outreach. In addition to preserving the standard repertoire, MWF also aims to support the growth and awareness of new music through engaging with composers. We aim to develop our community by presenting performances in non-traditional spaces, and by encouraging our audience to ask questions, interact, and view our events as both artistic and social. We hope you'll come and be a part of our MWF family!
