The final concert of the 2017–2018 Andrews University Wind Symphony season features a number of classic works and transcriptions for band by European composers. Ranging from Fučik’s classic Italian march "The Florentiner," the haunting mists of "The Engulfed Cathedral" by Claude Debussy and Norman Dello Joio’s imaginative "Scenes from 'The Louvre'” to Hindemith’s epic "March from 'Symphonic Metamorphosis,'" you won’t want to miss this exciting presentation! The program is free to the public as a thank you to all the wonderful WAUS members.

*Additional music from the AU Woodwind Quintet, Brass Quintet and Saxophone Sextet.
