Dear Students & Parents & Band Enthusiasts, Our Wind Ensemble kicks off their festival season this Friday, March 10th at George Fox University. We perform onstage at 2:00pm and in the sight reading room at 2:30pm.

We are in the process of shedding our old set and getting a new set of music worked up for festival season. It will probably take us all the way until the OSAA contest to shift. Below is our concert programming as well as our itinerary. Please feel free to come listen at GFU at 2:00pm on Friday.  Admission is free.

  1. El Camino Real, Alfred Reed – Hal Leonard Co.
  2. Lux Aurumque, Eric Whitacre – Hal Leonard Co.
  3. Reckoning, Michael Markowski – Markowski Creative (ASCAP)
  4. A Slavic Farewell, Vasilij Agapkin/ed. John R. Bourgeois – Wingert Jones Publications
