The Texas A&M University-Kingsville Wind Symphony will present its second concert of the spring at 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, in Jones Auditorium on the campus of Texas A&M University-Kingsville.  

The concert is free and open to the public.  

The ensemble will perform new classics for wind band. Music includes the exciting fanfare Nitro by Frank Ticheli, Mark Camphouse’s stirring Two American Canvases and Symphony for Winds and Percussion by Joseph Downing.  

Two American Canvases received its southwestern U.S. premiere in February by the Texas A&M-Kingsville Wind Symphony, and the band will perform its debut in Kingsville at the concert. Downing’s Symphony celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Also featured in the concert is Jon Dexter, cellist with the progressive rock band Distant Lights. Dexter will perform a movement from Arturo Rodriguez's exciting new work Elegy and Rondo.
