KU Wind Ensemble presents fall concert

September 16, 2007


Kansas University's music and dance department and fine arts school present the KU Wind Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Lied Center.

This marks the first full KU concert performance for the Wind Ensemble's new director, Scott Weiss. Weiss comes to KU from Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, where he was associate director of bands.

"For my first concert at KU, I selected a program of music that will highlight the virtuosity and versatility of one of the nation's finest collegiate wind bands," Weiss said. "The concert will feature a wide variety of music, including that from the standard repertoire for wind band, a new work that we commissioned by Cindy McTee, a wonderful Serenade for 13 solo winds by Richard Strauss, and the debut of clarinetist Stephanie Zelnick, KU assistant professor of clarinet."

Tickets are $7 general admission and $5 for senior citizens and students. For tickets, call 864-2787.
