This concert series is played outside in the pavilion at Soda Springs Park in Manitou Springs. The Little London Winds encourages our audience members to bring a picnic dinner as well as folding chairs as bench seating is limited and it does fill up fast. No tickets are necessary and the concert is open to the public.
Each week The Little London Winds holds a Conductors Auction during the concert. The winning audience member gets the chance to conduct The Little London Winds performing a march. Photos are taken and the audience member is also awarded a keepsake conductor’s baton. All donations made during the concert and during the Conductors Auction go to The Little London Winds, as it is a non-profit organization [501(c)].
Please remember that all parking in Mantiou Springs is now metered. Meters except both cash and credit/debit cards.
Established in 1992 by a small group of musicians, The Little London Winds has grown to 40 members and is now considered Colorado Springs’ premier wind ensemble. Conductor, Mr. Paul Jacobson, is a local music educator and composer. Membership in the group is by audition or invitation only.
