Rouge River Winds

The Rouge River Winds is a group of enthusiastic musicians who get together once a week to enjoy an evening making music with friends. Founded in the fall of 2010, the band has experienced rapid growth since its establishment. Under the direction of maestro Pratik Gandhi, the Rouge River Winds performs year-round at various community events, in addition to our five solo concerts per season.  Our membership consists of a widely diverse group of musicians ranging from high school students to professional adults, reflecting our commitment to life-long music making. We are a safe and positive space for every type of person!

New members

We primarily accept new members in September of each year, but vacancies may arise throughout the season.  Please see the information on our “Join” page for more details.


Thank you to Woburn Collegiate Institute, Dunbarton High School, St. Dustan of Canterbury Anglican Church and the Scarborough Citadel Community Church for their ongoing support of the RRW’s operations.

Thank you to the UTSC Arts Culture and Media Department for its support in getting this ensemble off the ground.

Thank you to our wonderful Music Director, Pratik Gandhi, for being our fearless leader in our Thursday night adventures in music making.  We are lucky to have such a talented conductor leading RRW, and we appreciate Pratik’s commitment and values more than words can express! <3
