WGAZ is a non-profit umbrella guiding the competitive development of winter guards, percussion ensembles, and wind ensembles in the southwest. WGAZ is governed by a Board of Directors representing the competing members of WGAZ from around the state of Arizona.
Our mission is to foster growth and quality in the performing arts by offering exceptional performance and educational opportunities for our community.
WGAZ has chosen competition as its method for organizing youth activities in pursuit of high standards of achievement. The two-day Championship event showcases more than 160 ensembles from across the state of Arizona. Member units prepare for this event by competing in at least three WGAZ sanctioned competitions through a competition season.
