Academy Street Winds rehearsal

Music Professor Thomas Evans leads the Academy Street Winds. Their winter-term concert is slated for this Saturday.

Music lovers will gather at 8 p.m. Saturday for an Academy Street Winds concert at Dalton Theater in the Light Fine Arts Building.

The Academy Street Winds, formerly known as the Kalamazoo College Symphonic Band, functions as a beloved creative outlet for woodwind, brass and percussion students. Community musicians joined the ensemble in winter 2016 to expand the group’s sound and capabilities.

The group, conducted by Music Professor Thomas Evans, performs one concert each term, playing exciting arrays of challenging band music. The band is a great favorite for its members and its audiences as the programs are coordinated around diverse themes, which allow for performances of much-loved pieces, both classic and new. The theme on Saturday will be “Landscape Escapes.” Admission is free.
