UNO Concert Bands Present 'Prevailing Winds XI – Fiesta!' Dec. 9
Omaha - Warm winds will fill the Strauss Performing Arts Center (SPAC) Recital Hall on a chilly December evening as the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Symphonic Wind Ensemble and University Concert Band perform their annual fall semester-ending concert, “Prevailing Winds.”
The concert, which will also include performances from both of UNO’s Jazz Ensembles, will take place inside SPAC on the UNO campus at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9. Professors James Saker, Courtney Snyder and Pete Madsen will be directing each of the student groups.
Some of the material covered by the students will include one of the earliest compositions for wind instruments, “Symphonic Fanfare,” the seasonally appropriate “Festive Overture” and work from artists like Tito Puente and Benny Carter.
Tickets for the eleventh installment of “Prevailing Winds” can be purchased at the door and are $5 for adults; $4 for students and seniors; and free for faculty, staff and students with a UNO MavCard.
