Northwest Wind Symphony to perform Wednesday

The Northwest Missouri State University Wind Symphony will perform its first concert of the academic year at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will feature works by Richard Strauss, Morten Lauridsen, Franz von Suppé, John Rimmer and James Curnow.

“Students have been working diligently in full rehearsals since the beginning of the trimester and have spent a considerable amount of additional time on their own in sectional rehearsals preparing for this performance,” Wind Symphony Conductor John Bell said. “The sense of eagerness on their part to share their hard work is more evident with each passing rehearsal, and I'm looking forward with great anticipation to our concert.”

The Wind Symphony is the Department of Fine and Performing Arts’ Music Department's premiere instrumental ensemble. The 60-piece wind and percussion ensemble performs the best standard selections in addition to repertoire from all styles and periods. The Wind Symphony regularly commissions and premieres new works, performs with guest soloists and conductors of national and international standing. It has been invited to perform for the Missouri Music Educators Association six times and for the Nebraska Music Educators Association in 2007.
