A winning fanfare will be performed in the lobby before each of the Dallas Winds season concert.

“The pre-concert fanfare has become a tradition,” founder Kim Campbell said. “They’re short, upbeat, and like a little cocktail to set a festive mood for the beginning of the evening. It’s really cool to see six or seven hundred people gather on the concert hall steps to listen, before they go on into the hall to enjoy the main program.”
