50th Anniversary Band Concert | May 11, 2019 | Bedford Concert Hall
In honor of UW-Parkside’s 50th anniversary, we invite alumni musicians back to campus for a special Alumni Concert Band performance this Spring.
The University Wind Ensemble performs outstanding literature for woodwinds, brass, and percussion. Consisting of non-majors and majors, this ensemble performs two to three concerts a semester and rehearses twice a week.
The Wind Ensemble plays music from all centuries – from Susato and Berlioz to Augusta Read Thomas. Repertoire consists mostly of original works for winds, with some transcriptions and popular music.
