Wind Ensemble to Celebrate 20 Years!
The Indiana Wesleyan University Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Michael Flanagin and Dr. Chris Lessly will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the group on Friday, April 17, at 7:30 in the Phillippe Auditorium. The first half of the concert will feature the current members of the wind ensemble playing the music of Bach (Toccata and Fugue in D Minor), David Maslanka’s Give Us This Day, and Dello Joio’s Scenes from the Louvre.
The second half of the concert will include alumni from not only the last 20 years of the wind ensemble but also Brass Dimensions as well as instrumentalists from the days of the IWU Concert Band. We expect to have 85-90 current and former members on stage to play American Overture, Variations on a Korean Folk Song, Riders for the Flag, and many more favorites from the ensemble’s past.
The concert is free and everyone is invited to a reception with the alumni following the concert. The reception will be held outside of Baker Recital Hall.
