The Wind Symphony of Northwest Missouri State University will present its fall concert Thursday, Oct. 12.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Mary Linn Auditorium at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. It is free and open to the public.

“Audience members can expect a wide range of musical styles – some perhaps familiar and likely some new,” John Bell, a Northwest artist-in-residence and the conductor of the Wind Symphony, said.

The Wind Symphony will perform works, including Oscar Navarro’s “Downey Overture,” Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Folk Song Suite,” David Biedenbender’s “This Night,” Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana” and Edwin Franko Goldman’s “On the Mall.”

The Northwest Wind Symphony is the University’s premier wind ensemble and performs the best standard selections from all styles and periods, in addition to recent repertoire for wind bands.
