The University of Jamestown Wind Ensemble will present “Shall We Dance?” at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8 in the Reiland Fine Arts Center’s DeNault Auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.
The program will feature dances from “Suite of Old American Dances” by renowned composer and Broadway musical orchestrator Robert Russell Bennett, as well as Christmas selections.
“Fans of Mannheim Steamroller won’t want to miss our band arrangement of one of their most popular tunes,” says Dr. Laura Zamzow, Director of Bands. “Our percussion ensemble will also play some Christmas pieces.”
Cookies, fruit, and hot drinks will be served at a reception following the concert.
The Wind Ensemble is a dedicated group of University of Jamestown students from 15 different majors, as well as community members and U of J faculty members.
“It has been my privilege and joy getting to know everyone and making music with them,” Dr. Zamzow says. “On behalf of the Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Big Orange Pep Band, I’d like to thank the community for their enthusiasm and support of instrumental music at the University of Jamestown.”
