    WGI Sport of the Arts presents the Next Step in the Marching Arts: WGI WINDS!


    After more than 37 years of presenting exciting indoor color guard and percussion competitions, WGI is expanding into the next step for the marching arts.  Beginning in 2015, the organization will begin offering a new type of competition in full support of the total band program: WGI Winds! 

    "We had been considering events for indoor marching music ensembles for a number of years," says WGI Executive Director Ron Nankervis. "With the explosion of color guards and percussion ensembles that keep growing each year, Winds is a natural extension of the WGI organization. Last summer, the WGI board of directors considered the creation of a third division, and Winds was overwhelming approved to begin contests in 2015 culminating in the first WGI Winds World Championships next April."
