Fall 2015 saw this site in transition: what was Andy Pease’s Wind Band Blog became Wind Band Literature: A Conductor’s Perspective and moved to windliterature.org.  All of the former content is there, and (for now) old links to andypease.wordpress.com pages will redirect to the new site.  A Facebook page was also created and “liked” by the hundreds. This fall, I featured content for the two groups that I conducted, the South Mountain Community College Band and the Sun Valley Chamber Winds, as follows:
