SVSU Wind Ensemble in concert Oct. 13

Saginaw Valley State University's Wind Ensemble will perform in concert Thursday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in SVSU's Rhea Miller Recital Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Norman Wika, SVSU assistant professor of music and director of bands, will conduct the ensemble of 29 students. This is Wika’s first year as director, as he replaces Bill Wollner, who retired in May after serving in that role for 34 years.

The concert will feature selections including “Shepard’s Hey” by Percy Grainer, “Give Us This Day” by David Maslanka, and “The Fairest of the Fair” by John Philip Sousa.
