Concert Band
Tuesday, 3:30 p.m., Stratton Hall

Upholding a 10-year tradition, the Concert Band will perform on Tuesday, March 19, at 3:30 p.m. in Stratton Hall. The concert will open with a lively piece called “Choreography.” The other pieces will be just as fun and colorful. “The highlight of the concert will feature two faculty soloists: Bob Chest and Dan Kirsop,” said Dr. Bruce Cox, head of the department of instrumental studies and director of the Concert Band. “Since most students would probably know someone in the band, come out, support your friends and enjoy the music.”
