The Concert Wind Ensemble will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Lied Center. Robert E. Foster, Kansas University director of bands, is conductor of the 64-piece ensemble, and will be assisted by Naoya Takizawa, Tokyo, Japan, doctoral student in conducting.

The ensemble will perform "A Salute to Sir Malcolm Arnold," the famed British composer. Plans for Arnold to visit KU this fall had to be changed because of his poor health, Foster said.

The concert will feature Arnold's "Peterloo Overture," "Fanfare for Louis, 1970" for solo trumpets and "Four Scottish Dances, Op. 59."

The remainder of the program includes "First Suite in E-flat for Military Band," by Gustav Holst; "Handel in the Strand," by Percy Grainger; "Eagle Squadron," by Kenneth Alford; "Old Wine in New Bottles," by Gordon Jacob" "Four Old English Tunes," arranged for wind instruments, including "The Wraggle Taggle Gipsies," "The Three Ravens Begone" "Dull Care!" and "Early One Morning"; and "Royal Air Force March Past," by Walford Davies, edited by Foster.

Tickets are on sale at the Lied Center Box Office, 864-ARTS; Murphy Hall Box Office, 864-3982; and the Student Union Activities Box Office, 864-3477.
