Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band to perform concert Feb. 21

The Northwest Missouri State University Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band will perform a joint concert at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

The concert, which is free and open to the public, will feature works by Richard Wagner, John Philip Sousa, Ralph Vaughan Williams and other works by contemporary composers.

The Wind Symphony is a 60-piece wind and percussion ensemble that 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. 

The Symphonic Band performs a broad range of literature including transcriptions, modern wind compositions and light pop selections. It performs on campus during the spring trimester and participates in the high school band Invitational Concert Series. It is open to all interested students and serves as an outlet for many non-music majors.

John Bell conducts the Wind Symphony and shares conducting responsibilities for the Northwest Symphonic Band with Dr. Kendall Prinz.
