Alumni will perform with students to bring together SUU’s best and brightest wind musicians. SUU’s Wind Symphony will be performing Friday, Oct. 6. The concert is free and open to the public.

The Wind Symphony at SUU is a group of the best wind and percussion students who have auditioned to be a part of the ensemble. They work to perform the highest quality of both contemporary and traditional pieces written for wind ensembles.

While they are committed to high quality performances, the Wind Symphony also enjoys and provides inventive concerts such as the Alumni Concert as well as adventurous programming and advanced music making.

Adam Lambert, associate professor and director of bands, said he is excited to be a part of this tradition.

“We will hear from both the current students in our Wind Symphony, and some outstanding alumni, normally part of the music department,” Lambert said. “We hope to demonstrate from this multi-generational group that you are never too young or too old to make amazing music!”

Some SUU Alumni have gone on to teaching and professional performance careers. SUU is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music and provides SUU students a wide variety of musical opportunities that can result in music performance or teaching degrees. The music faculty are experienced both in teaching and performing and help the students to achieve many accomplishments. On top of a fulfilling degree such as state, regional and national recognition.

Enjoy the performance of the SUU Wind Symphony and Alumni Friday, Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Heritage Center Theater. For more information about the Music Department visit www.suu.edu/pva/music.
