“Novo” is taken from the Latin term “de novo” meaning afresh, a new beginning. Novo Winds seeks to broaden the scope and function of band music by incorporating new performance concepts and musical directions, as well as reach out to more audiences across a wider age group.
Through popular arrangements and original compositions, it is hoped that Novo Winds will also appeal to players who are keen on expanding the diversity of local band music and bring its standard to a new level.
The logo is a combination of Novo Winds’ initials “N” and “W”.
Confident, thick strokes epitomize a united direction that members of the band undertake to commit themselves to a superior level of music; the use of graceful curves and round ending edges typical of music notation represent exuberance and creativity.
