Wind Symphony Fall Concert

   Campus News | Posted on October 7, 2022

The Andrews University Wind Symphony is proud to present its fall concert, “The Old Warhorse” on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 8 p.m. in the Howard Performing Arts Center. You won’t want to miss the Symphony’s first full concert of the 2022–23 season.

An “old warhorse” in the band world is vernacular for a piece that is well-known and popular for a long history of successful performance. This program will feature a number of pieces in this category, including John Philip Sousa’s “Washington Post March,” Alfred Reed’s “El Camino Real,” selections from Meredith Wilson’s hit musical “The Music Man,” and a transcription of Franz von Suppé’s overture “Light Cavalry.”

Additionally, the audience will be introduced to two candidates for a “new warhorse”: Eric Whitacre’s lush fall music, “October,” and Oja Gjeilo’s rhythmic groove piece, “Meridian.” 

The Wind Symphony looks forward to welcoming its audience. Tickets for this event can be purchased at and are $7 for general seating and $5 for students and seniors. There is a two-ticket limit if purchasing with a student ID, and reservations may also be made over the phone. For additional information, contact the Howard box office at 269-471-3560.
