Tequila Wind Orchestra
Tequila Wind Orchestra was formed and established by college students who love wind instruments. People from all walks of life were grouped and exert themselves to creat the exquisite melody for those who have a passion in music. The name "Tequila" was the transcription from Spanish. Tequila is the name of spirits and also symbolizes our performance, which means that you'll get drunk in it. Just like the taste of tequila, we love wind instruments purely. In Mexico, tequila is exported and is the main support of their economics. So, in all of products, tequila is strongly restricted by the law. To us, tequila is not only the symbol of music but the mental food. Some said tequila is so spicy and makes one highly jolly. Yet, others said it's fragrant and intrigues everyone. As the result, we look forward to bring you the feast like tequila.
