Coastal Winds Concert Band

the Freeport area's Community Band

About the Band

Enjoy music with the members of the Coastal Winds Concert Band as they celebrate their 15th season.  The Coastal Winds, the Freeport area's community band, comprises over 35 dedicated and talented woodwind, brass, and percussion instrumentalists.  Membership is on a volunteer basis and includes professional musicians, business people, and retirees from the Mid Coast area, as well as a few high school students. 

Conductor and Music Director Brendan Krueger is also the band director and principal of Pine Tree Academy in Freeport. He founded the Coastal Winds in 2000, and it has been growing and developing ever since. The Pine Tree Academy hosts and sponsors the band, with additional funding provided by contributions from band members and loyal fans.

One of the unique features of this group is that it performs year-round. The band's repertoire spans a wide range that covers classical, pops, sacred and Christmas music ... and of course a few marches.
