Missouri S&T’s arts, languages, and philosophy department will present its second Wind Symphony concert of the season this November.

The performance will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The Wind Symphony is directed by Dr. David Samson, assistant professor of music at S&T. The student-led movie music ensemble and video game music ensemble will also perform. 

“The University Wind Symphony is excited to present our second concert of the semester,” says Samson. “The mix of newer works along with standards of the wind band repertoire will be a great joy to perform. The addition of video game music in this concert is an homage to the great work being done by our Video Game Music Ensemble and other student-led groups.”

The Wind Symphony’s program includes “The Great Locomotive Chase” by Robert W. Smith, followed by “One Life Beautiful” by Julie Giroux, “Russian Christmas Music” by Alfred Reed with guest conductor Dr. Kyle Wernke, “Sogno di Volare” by Christopher Tin from the video game “Civilization VI” arranged by Matt Conaway, “Semper Fidelis” by John Philip Sousa and “Incantation and Dance” by John Barnes Chance.

Tickets are $5 for the public, and free to youth ages 18 and under and Missouri S&T students with a valid ID. Tickets can be purchased 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday from the Leach Theatre Box Office, located inside the main entrance to Castleman Hall, facing 10th Street.
