From staff reports

The Lowcountry Wind Symphony (LWS) is seeking new members as it returns to a regular concert season after an 18-month hiatus. Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion players are welcome.

There is no audition required. Rehearsals have started and are held Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Beaufort High School Band Room.

LWS is a concert band, comprised of local amateur and professional musicians from the greater Beaufort County area. High school students, recommended by their teacher or band director, are also welcome. While all woodwind, brass and percussion players are welcome, there are particular needs for flute, double reeds, saxophone, and trombone.

LWS is planning a full season of six concerts beginning in early November with “Saluting America’s Veterans VI.” Performances are scheduled north of the Broad River in Beaufort, and in the greater Bluffton area.
