This combined concert will open with the Symphonic Band, conducted by David Starnes, director of WCU athletic bands, performing Alfred Reed’s composition “Russian Christmas Music,” as well as Reed’s arrangement of “Greensleeves.” The Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Margaret Underwood, associate professor with the WCU School of Music, will perform works by Khachaturian, Shostakovich, Woolfenden and Bach.

“This has been the first year that we have had two concert bands during the fall, and it has been fantastic to hear so much music happening in Coulter,” Underwood said. “The students work extremely hard to perform great music well, and we love making music with them.”
