About The Hillcrest Wind Ensemble
Welcome! The Hillcrest Wind Ensemble, one of Southern California's finest adult musical organizations, celebrates over 20 years of providing quality musical programs for the greater San Diego community. Originally called San Diego's Finest City Freedom Band, the group was formed to bring music to the LGBT community as a marching band that also played concerts. With the turn of the new century, the band has evolved into an elite concert band, playing more advanced music with a new mission to entertain the ideal of diversity within our ranks as well as promoting quality music to all of San Diego.
The Hillcrest Wind Ensemble is a self-supporting program of The Center, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. We do not receive any funding from The Center. Rather, we exist on income from concert ticket sales, the sale of merchandise, such as CDs, and donations from patrons and sponsors. To learn more about The Center or make an online donation to The Hillcrest Wind Ensemble, visit The Center's website by clicking their logo in the right column.
