Weber State University Department of Performing Arts presents a fund raising dessert reception and concert with the WSU Wind Ensemble with the reception at 6:00 pm and concert at 7:00 pm, Thursday, November 18, in the Ballroom of the Shepherd Union Building. This event will be a fund raiser for the Wind Ensemble’s March, 2011, tour to Chicago to perform the closing concert of the first Chicago International Band and Orchestra Festival, under the auspices of World Projects, to be held in the home of the Chicago Symphony, the Armour Stage of the Chicago Symphony Center. Since this is both a band and orchestra event, the Wind Ensemble will share the stage with the Murray State University Symphony Orchestra in this closing concert.
In conjunction with the pops concert there will be a silent auction of items donated, created, or collected by members of the band and businesses from throughout Utah. The auction will begin at 6PM, with the concert scheduled at 7PM.
Tickets are $30. Tickets sold for the concert and auction will directly benefit band members and are only available in advance through band members or by calling 801 626 6443 or 801 626 7245. The concert will feature a variety of light works, marches, Broadway shows, and others.
