K-State Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony perform Sunday

Submitted by Don Linn

The K-State Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony will present a concert at 3 p.m Sunday in McCain Auditorium. The Wind Ensemble from St. Charles East High School, St. Charles, Ill. — under the direction of former K-State faculty member Jim Kull — also will be featured during the concert. Admission is free.

St. Charles East High School will begin the concert with works from Markowski, Chance and Turner. K-State director of bands Frank Tracz will be a guest conductor and clinician with the high school band.

The K-State Wind Symphony will perform "Incantation and Dance" by John Barnes Chance and the K-State Wind Ensemble will perform John Mackey's "Hymn to a Blue Hour." The top two K-State bands will then combine for Malcolm Arnold's "Four Scottish Dances" and Roland Seitz's famous "March Grandioso."

The Wind Ensemble will be conducted by Don Linn and the Wind Symphony will be conducted by Phillip Payne. Both groups feature our top student musicians in the K-State band program.
