"Summer Fades Away" 

Our beautiful Michigan summer is gradually fading away, as the days grow shorter and we feel a chill in the night air. But before the warmth disappears completely, come enjoy music performed by the Andrews University Wind Symphony to ease our seasonal transition. Directed by Byron Graves, the Wind Symphony will perform a wide variety of summer-themed music, including Aaron Copland’s An Outdoor Overture, Karl King’s famous circus march Barnum & Bailey’s Favorite, as well as a nod to fall with the wistful melancholy sounds of October by Eric Whitacre.”
