The performance is free of charge and open to the public.

The University Band will present an array of styles in this performance, featuring H. Owen Reed's classic La Fiesta Mexicana as the centerpiece, a staple of the wind band repertoire. The University Band brass and percussion sections will begin Craig Pare Fall 2008 Conducting.JPGthe concert with Richard Strauss' Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare, leading to works for the full ensemble by Claude Debussy, Anthony Iannaccone and Walter Piston.

"I am truly excited about the repertoire on this program," says Craig Paré, conductor of the University Band. "This mixture of styles and eras is a wonderful challenge to the ensemble, and a buffet of sounds and colors for the listener. There is definitely something for every listener in this concert."

As an added treat, Sunday's performance will include two student chamber ensembles, a tuba quartet coached by Professor Orcenith Smith, and the Fusion Saxophone Quartet, coached by Professor Scotty Stepp.

The concert will be broadcast on DePauw University's student radio station, WGRE.wgre.jpg Tune in to 91.5 FM or access the music online via this link.
