Dear MSW

Congrats on a great first rehearsal! It was a joy to make music together again.

Please find the updated and revised membership policies here. These are also available on our website through the password protected member site – Member Information – MSW | Minnesota Symphonic Winds ( or in the general audition section. We will also have a few hard copies available at rehearsal.

I encourage all members (and subs) to review this document, which clearly outlines attendance and rehearsal expectations. Also included, specifically for members, is information on dues. While subs are not expected to pay any dues, we certainly invite and welcome financial contributions of any amount! 

You all demonstrated well your commitment to the ensemble in your preparedness last night – I know it was appreciated by Tim and by everyone in the ensemble! Thank you. 

If you should have any questions regarding these policies, I encourage you to discuss them either with your section leader, Jill Westermeyer or myself. You are always welcome to reach out to me at

Rebecca Sauer,
MSW President
