The K-State Wind Ensemble and Wind Symphony will present a concert at 7:30 p.m. today in McCain Auditorium.

This concert will feature K-State faculty clarinet soloist Tod Kerstetter and internationally renown trombone performer Domingo Pagliucia.

The Wind Ensemble was recently selected to perform at this year's College Band Directors National Association Southwest divisional conference in March and was selected to be the premiere performance band at the prestigious 2016 Larry Sutherland Fresno Wind Band Festival.
