About the CCWE





The Capital City Wind Ensemble is the City employee band of Saint Paul, Minnesota.

It was founded by the legendary Max Metzger in 2002, and consists of City and Ramsey County employees and retirees, plus other Downtown St. Paul and University of Minnesota workers, and a few friends, too.

The 24-member group plays concerts at the Saint Paul City Hall and Ramsey County Courthouse, at the St. Paul Winter Carnival, and various parks around the city. Contact Mary Livingston if you'd like the Capital City Wind Ensemble to play for your special event.

The group has been led by Mary Livingston and Roger Grupp since the fall of 2006. Mary is a Parks and Recreation Dept. employee, and Roger is a retiree from the Department of Public Works.

The CCWE is always looking for new members, too. Contact Mary if you're interested.



April rehearsals are Thursdays at noon in the basement of City Hall on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th.
