Concordia's Concert Band to Perform Home Concert

Published by Brooke Lange 11 months ago on Tue, Mar 14, 2023 4:18 PM

Concordia’s Concert Band will perform their home concert on March 19th at 3pm in Weller Chapel upon getting back from their eleven-day long tour where they had stops in Missouri, Illinois, Tennesse, Georgia, and Florida. 

The concert will offer different selections from a variety of genres including pieces from Robert Sheldon, Jonathan Dove, and John Philip Sousa.  

As Concordia University’s premiere instrumental ensemble, the University Concert Band is deeply rooted in the more than 100-year history of instrumental musical ensembles at Concordia. Concordia’s first dedicated music professor, Karl Hasse, organized the first instrumental music ensemble in 1906, and the University Concert Band continues to build on the legacy and tradition of excellence in instrumental music at Concordia. The Concert Band keeps an active performance schedule both on and off campus, having performed concerts in more than 20 states in the past 20 years. Recently the ensemble toured to Alabama, Indiana, Texas, the Pacific Northwest, Florida, Illinois and Iowa. In addition to the ensemble’s music being featured on broadcasts of “The Lutheran Hour,” the Concert band has released two CD recordings, In the Spring and Winds from the Prairie.
