MANSFIELD - The Mansfield University Concert Wind Ensemble, directed by Adam Brennan, will perform at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 18 in Steadman Theatre.
The concert is free and open to the public. Donations of canned goods and paper products for area food pantries will be collected.
Sunday's concert will feature a variety of music, including Alfred Reed's "Praise Jerusalem," David Holsinger's "In the Spring at a Time When Kings Go Off to War" and Jacques Offenbach's "La Belle Helene."
Persichetti's "Psalm for Band," Karl King's "Barnum and Bailey's Favorite," Mark Camphouse's "Elegy," and Malcom Arnold's "Four Scottish Dances" and Brennan's own new work, "An Olympic Year," also will be featured.
The concert culminates the CWE's three-day concert tour through central and eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey Nov. 14 through 16 and the group's annual recording project Nov. 17.
"This is always one of our best concerts because we have been on the road promoting Mansfield University through our music program," Brennan said. "The opportunity to play this music for many audiences, as well as our full day of doing a professional recording of the music, hones the musician's skills and truly unifies the group."
The CWE has been hailed under Brennan's leadership for its compelling interpretations of the finest music in the wind-band medium. Theodore Lentz and Kaitlyn Wolford, both graduate assistants to the band program and candidates for the master of arts in music with an emphasis in instrumental conducting, will each conduct one of the works on the program.
A reception honoring the graduating seniors in the CWE will follow the concert. All are welcome to attend.
