The Pittsburg State University Wind Ensemble will present a free concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17, in Pittsburg's Memorial Auditorium. The concert will feature repertoire that the group is preparing to perform at the Kansas Music Educators Association (KMEA) convention on February 24th in Wichita.
Dr. Craig Fuchs, who directs the ensemble, said it is an honor to be selected to perform at the convention. Groups are selected to perform at the convention through auditions. Previously, the ensemble was chosen in 2006 and 2009.
The ensemble's Pittsburg performance will feature graduate student conductors Jennifer Sager, Ryan Lovell, and Louis Morgan. Also featured will be Dr. James Clanton, instructor of percussion, as timpani soloist on Michael Daugherty's "Raise the Roof."
