Music lovers will gather at 8 p.m. Friday for a free Academy Street Winds concert at Dalton Theater in the Light Fine Arts Building.
The group, 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. Director of Bands and Professor of Music Thomas Evans serves as the group’s conductor.
The theme for the fall-term concert will be “Celebration and Dance” as it features some of the great dance themes from around the world. If you can’t attend in person, listen in through a livestream on Vimeo.
