YSU Concert Band & Wind Ensemble

In the year's final performance by these ensembles, Dr. Brandt Payne will lead the YSU Concert Band performing a repertoire that includes classics for the wind band as well as new works. The Wind Ensemble will open with a pair of works by Percy Grainger that includes his beautiful setting of "Irish Tune from County Derry." This couplet will be conducted by graduate conducting student, Brady Amerson. Senior trumpet performer Michael Barkett and junior English horn performer Elliot Kwolek will be featured in Hunsberger's setting of Aaron Copland's haunting "Quiet City." Dr. Stephen Gage will lead the Wind Ensemble who will close its program with a new arrangement of Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition."


For most events, the exterior doors will open one hour prior to the scheduled event start time.
The Elevator is located in the south west corner just inside the ADA / Garden Entrance on the left.
