Come join us for the Wind Symphony Winter Concert, featuring our annual partnership with the Southwestern Michigan College Brass Band under the direction of their new conductor, Mark Hollandsworth. We will be featuring several classic works for band, including Joseph Jenkins exuberant "American Overture for Band," Gustav Holst’s seminal "First Suite in Eb," one of the first serious works for wind band, and Oliver Nickel’s transcription of "Danzón No. 2," a contemporary classical work by Mexican composer Arturo Márquez inspired by Cuban dance rhythms. We will also perform to gorgeous melodies, Frank Ticheli’s lush arrangement of the folk song "Shenandoah," and a lullaby "Song for My Children," by Andrew Boysen Jr.
