In 1985, the Heisey Wind Ensemble was brought to life by band directors J M Day and Don Workman, both driven by a shared vision of quality music and community excellence. Today, under the esteemed direction of Dr. Russel Mikkelson, they continue to delight audiences with exceptional performances, both in scale and artistry. The Heisey Wind Ensemble invites you to explore their rich musical history and enjoy their outstanding concerts.

The members of the Heisey Wind Ensemble make the group possible. They volunteer their time to prepare for engaging, high quality concerts. We are proud to have a supportive environment where members choose to stay for many years – some even since the inception of the Ensemble in 1985!
