The concert will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located at the corner of 10th and Main streets on the Missouri S&T campus. The concert will feature performances by the University Wind Symphony, directed by Dr. David Samson, an assistant professor of music, and the Symphonic Band, directed by Dr. Kyle Wernke, an assistant teaching professor of music.

The Symphonic Band will perform “Selections from ‘Phantom of the Opera’” by Andrew Lloyd Webber and music from the movie “Avengers: Endgame” by Alan Silvestri. They will also perform “Canzona” by Peter Mennin and “Highland Anthem” by Andrey Stolyarov. The Wind Symphony will perform “Lux Arumque” by Eric Whitacre, “Arabesque” by Sam Hazo, arrangements of “Procession of the Nobles” by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, “Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite” by Karl King and music from the movie “O Brother, Where art Thou” arranged by Michael Brown.

“We are extremely proud to present this concert to the Rolla community,” says Samson. “Both bands have worked hard to present a wide range of pieces from traditional marches and orchestral transcriptions to modern movie music and new works for wind band.”
