To our Valued Customers,

After over 30 years in business, Gracewinds Music will soon close its doors for good in order to allow us (owners Ken, Sharon and Travis Oefelein) to move on to family time and retirement. Though the decision was bittersweet, the time is right for a change.

The store’s band, orchestra and school music division is being purchased by Gracewinds Music’s repair technicians, Mark and Katie Rasmussen. Our online sales division will continue on in a different location. The Rasmussens will be open for business in January 2017 under the name Windsmith Music in Philomath. Schools and rental customers will continue to be served by us until Windsmith Music takes over. We will be contacting all rental customers with specific timelines and details in the next few weeks—no action is required on your part at this time. We and the Rasmussens hope to make this transition as seamless as possible.

We will be closed this Friday in preparation of our liquidation sale starting this Saturday morning (11/19) at 11am. Over $2 million in inventory must go, including instruments, pro-audio equipment, accessories, books, fixtures, supplies, decor, and much more. It’s truly a once in a lifetime opportunity, so please come soon, the early bird gets the worm!  

We would like to sincerely thank our staff, customers, friends, and the local music community for your support and patronage over the past 30 years. It’s been a pleasure to serve you as your local music store.


Ken, Sharon and Travis Oefelein
