Posted by Ashley Wise on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 @ 10:09 AM

The Waynesburg University Symphonic Band will present their annual performance Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 5:15 p.m. The concert will be held in the Marsh Center. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The Waynesburg University Symphonic Band adds to the splendor of the autumn season with its annual fall concert. This concert will begin a year-long study of wind band history, beginning with music from the medieval and renaissance eras.

The Symphonic Band will begin the season by investigating the music of composers such as Leonin, Perotin, Machaut, the Gabrielis, Speer, Susato and Farnaby, to name a few. Early wind bands produced music for a variety of purposes, including civic ceremonies, religious services, weddings and dances.

No reservations are necessary for this event.
