Dr. Ronda DePriest, director of the Music Program at the University, works with the band for six weeks leading up to the concert and considers it a blessing to be able to share the art of music with others.

“I can’t imagine a day without an opportunity to share music,” she said.

The Waynesburg University Symphonic Band Fall Concert, “Great Music for the Wind Band,” will be held Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 5:15 p.m. in the Marsh Center in Roberts Chapel. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The Symphonic Band will perform a variety of American musical pieces, including “As Summer was Just Beginning,” “God’s Country” and three songs from the movie franchise “Star Wars.”

“The fall concert showcases an early ensemble sound from the group, but it also gives the ensemble and the audience an initial opportunity to share some great wind band repertoire early in the year,” said Ronda DePriest, associate professor of instrumental music and director of the Music Program.

No reservations are necessary for this event. For more information, contact Ronda DePriest at redpries@waynesburg.edu or 724-852-3420.
