The Metropolitan Winds is an adult community wind ensemble based in Toronto. We are part of the “Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra” organization.

Our ensemble is composed of amateur and professional musicians in the community, along with alumni of the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra (TYWO).

We strive to present high quality musical performances, and create a friendly, inviting and welcoming environment for our musicians. Good ol’ fashioned band geek goodness is our specialty.

Under the direction of Colin Clarke, our music is a balanced mix of original pieces composed for wind band, challenging contemporary works, as well as some light music.

Rehearsals take place on Sunday evenings from 18:30 to 20:30 at the Meridian Arts Centre in Toronto (5040 Yonge St, near Mel Lastman Square). Rehearsals begin in September and run through May. We also have a summer project in collaboration with TYWO.
