The Wisconsin Symphonic Winds presents 2014 summer concert on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 3 p.m.
The group’s conductor and artistic director, Dr. Rob McWilliams, describes his eleven seasons with the wind ensemble a true privilege to work with some of the best wind and percussion players from the Fox Valley and wider region. “WSW gives these fine musicians an opportunity to play wind band literature at the highest level. It’s all volunteer and the vast majority of the musicians come back to play every summer.”

Procession of the Nobles – Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Angels in the Architecture – Frank Ticheli
Shortcut Home – Dana Wilson
Second Suite in F – Gustav Holst
