The Texas A&M University-Kingsville Bands and Wind Symphony will present their final concert of the spring Tuesday, April 27, at 7 p.m. in Jones Auditorium, located on campus near the corner of Armstrong and Santa Gertrudis.

The concert is free and open to the public

The ensembles will perform a wide variety of original music for wind band. The University Band, under the direction of Brian Shelton, will present three contrasting works by international composers: the Mexican march Pepita Greus by Pascual Perez Chovi, Danish composer Johan De Meij’s Aquarium and Liturgical Dances by American David Holsinger. 

Directed by assistant director of bands Jason Kihle, the Concert Band features a set of evocative American works. An Outdoor Overture by Aaron Copland depicts the optimism of youth and pioneering spirit of America. A Hymn for the Lost and the Living by Eric Ewazen is a memorial to the events of September 11, 2001, and Tempered Steel is a bold work by Charles Rochester Young. 

The concert will conclude with the Wind Symphony’s performance of David Maslanka’s epic and powerful Symphony No. 7, led by Brian Shelton. 

Also on the program is 2010 Phi Mu Alpha Concerto Competition winner Amanda Montalvo performing Mozart’s delightful Flute Concerto in G Major.
