“The Music Of …” a Concert by the Webster University Wind Ensemble
The Webster University Wind Ensemble, directed by James A. Martin, will perform a concert of music both written and transcribed for the Wind Ensemble.

The program also includes Gustav Holst’s Mars from The Planets and the Symphony #3 by Boris Kozhevnikov.
The second half of the concert features the Webster Choral Society under the direction of Graduate students Andrew Hampton and Charles Mueller, both completing an MA in Choral Conducting. The Choral Society will be performing Francesco Durante's Magnificat.
