About the CCWE





The Capital City Wind Ensemble – the CCWE – 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 CCWE to play for your event.

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

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



January rehearsals are on Thursdays, the 5th, 19th, and 26th at noon in the basement of St. Paul’s City Hall. There’s NO rehearsal on the 12th.

The CCWE will be playing in concert on Tuesday, January 31st.
