The Shepherd University Wind Ensemble will perform a concert featuring international wind band music on Friday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. in the Frank Center. A pre-concert lecture describing the works will begin at 7 p.m.
The Wind Ensemble is comprised of Shepherd music majors and a few select non-majors. The ensemble has been invited to perform around the world. In 2001, the group accepted an invitation from the Lord Mayor of Dublin to tour Ireland. In 2004, its recording of Barnes Symphony #3 garnered the ensemble an invitation to be a part of the 2005 season in Carnegie Hall. And in 2009, the Wind Ensemble attended a 10-day concert tour of Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, and Prague.
Admission and seating is first-come, first-served basis, and advance sales or reservations are not available. The box office will open one hour prior to the performance. The Wind Ensemble concert is $10 for general admission; $5 for non-Shepherd students, faculty, and staff; and free to Shepherd students and Friends of Music MAC cardholders.
