Arafura Wind Ensemble Inc.

Live Music for your Event

Welcome to the Arafura Wind Ensemble (AWE)              

AWE Founded in 1993 - Continuing to Perform

Founded in 1993, the Arafura Wind Ensemble Inc, is a concert band located in the Northern Territory.

This Top End concert band (or symphonic wind band) comprises volunteer musicians who love to bring a contemporary range of music to willing audiences.  Most concert band music was composed in the twentieth century and this gives our musicians and audiences alike the opportunity to explore a range of modern sounds that match our current lifestyles. 

The Arafura Wind Ensemble (AWE) is the only community-based concert band in the Top End. It enjoys a very busy performance schedule in and around the Northern Territory cities of Darwin and Palmerston (Australia). 

Whether you are looking to join a friendly musical group or need an ensemble to play at your event - you are sure to be happy being involved with the Arafura Wind Ensemble Inc.
