The University Symphony Band and Symphonic Winds will host a concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, in Leach Theatre of UMR’s Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The performance is free for students and youths under the age of 18. Tickets are $3 for the general public and are available at the door and at the Leach Theatre Box Office.
“The ensembles will perform a little of everything,” says Dr. Donald Miller, conductor of the groups and assistant professor of music at UMR. “It will be a lot of fun for the audience and performers alike.”
The Symphonic Winds, an audition-only ensemble, will perform “Suite No.1 in E-Flat” by Gustav Holst and “Old Home Days” by Charles Ives.
The Symphony Band, composed of UMR students and members of the Rolla community, will perform three pieces: “Chorale and Shaker Dance” by John Zdechlik, “Simple Gifts” by Aaron Copland and “Circus Days” by Karl King.
