The Wartburg College Wind Ensemble will perform Sunday, April 23, at 3 p.m., at Colo-Nesco High School, as part of its Midwest tour.
Samantha Riese, a Colo-Nesco graduate, plays trumpet in the Wind Ensemble. The Colo-Nesco High School Band also will be featured at the concert. Free-will donations will be accepted at the door.
The 54-member Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Craig Hancock, will perform a range of works, including “Scootin’ on Hardrock” by David Holsinger, “October” by Eric Whitacre, “Southern Hymn” by Samuel Hazo and “The Flight of the Bumble Bee” from “The Legend of Tsar Sultan.”
“We’ll be playing a wide variety of music, to include both American and European marches, some hymn tunes, some hard things and some fun, toe-tapping stuff that will make you want to clap your hands,” Hancock said.
The tour will take the ensemble through Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois.
