Flag Day is celebrated every year on June 14. On that day in 1777, the Second Continental Congress issued a resolution that adopted the flag of the United States. President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation in 1916 that officially established June 14 as Flag Day and in August 1949 an Act of Congress established National Flag Day.

"Tight ensemble, precise unisons ... Highly polished." Los Angeles Times

About the award-winning ensemble is in residence at San Diego State University and receives major support from the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture. As an ensemble, which seeks to foster appreciation of brass chamber music as a dynamic, exciting art form, Westwind Brass’ artistic philosophy is to feature music from around the world and throughout the ages. Our programs reach back to medieval Europe and ahead to premieres by American modern masters. When performing concerts and presenting our educational outreach to local schools, we feel that offering a variety of musical styles enables us to resonate with diverse audiences. Westwind Brass reaches 15,000 students annually throughout the County of San Diego. Over the past 25 years, musical access through enhanced performances has been provided to over 350,000 students.

In addition to in-school educational performances, Westwind Brass offers master classes and ensemble coaching for high school and college music students, and in-services programs to meet the needs of each school site.

Each summer, Westwind Brass holds its annual International Brass Workshop at San Diego State University. This workshop is open to brass musicians of all age.

The Veterans Memorial Center, Inc. was formed in March 1989 to create, maintain and operate an institution to honor and perpetuate the memories of all men and women who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
