The Arkansas Valley Wind and Percussion Ensemble is a well-established community band in Lamar, Colorado. We include a concert band and smaller ensembles, such as the AVWPE Jazz Band, pictured here:

The band consists entirely of volunteer musicians from the area around Lamar in Southeastern Colorado, and provides several concerts a year to our local community.

The band rehearses in the Shore Arts Center for several weeks in advance of our concerts. If you are interested in joining the band as a player, as a volunteer worker, or would simply like to come hear our concerts, just send us an email using our Contact Us form. Click HERE to go to that form.
