The diverse program includes selections from Thomas Tallis; John Barnes Chance; music from the motion picture, “How to Train Your Dragon”; and much more. Admission is free.

Under the baton of Scott Deppe, director of bands at LU, pictured above, the Wind Ensemble is composed of 56 students from several different colleges and majors throughout the university. Eric Shannon, director of athletic bands, pictured below, conducts the Concert Band, which has 62 members.
