Superior Wind Symphony to perform Feb. 23

HOUGHTON -- The Superior Wind Symphony will perform for the Midwinter Band Festival Concert at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 23, in the Rozsa Center. Conductor Nicholas Enz (VPA) will treat the audience to an evening filled with folksongs, featuring guest conductor Evan Feldman of the University of North Carolina.

Wednesday night's concert draws from the folk music of many different countries -- from H. Owen Reed's masterwork, "La Fiesta Mexicana," to the music of Percy Grainger, with two of his most popular works, "Irish Tune from County Derry" and "Shepherd's Hey," the toe-tapping Morris dance.

In addition to the concert, Feldman will work with Copper Country high school bands and their directors, including Lake Linden-Hubble, Jeffers, Houghton, Dollar Bay and Hancock.

Ticket prices are $10 for the general public, $5 for students, and free for Michigan Tech students. To purchase tickets, contact the Rozsa Box Office at 487-3200, the Central Ticket Office (SDC) at 487-2073, or go online at www.tickets.mtu.edu.

No refunds, exchanges or late seating, please.
