Abilene, TX

The McMurry University Wind Ensemble will perform with the Abilene Community Band in a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 24, at the Paramount Theater.

The McMurry Wind Ensemble is under the direction of David Robinson and the Abilene Community Band is under the direction of Joe Stephens. 

The McMurry Wind Ensemble will feature the co-winners of its concerto competition: Dustin Jaramillo on euphonium, a senior from Pace H.S. in Brownsville, TX; and Rachel Hall on clarinet, a junior from Central Texas Christian H.S. in Belton, TX. The Abilene Community Band will perform a series of popular works before closing the concert with both groups combined—playing “Battle Hymn of the Republic”, as set by Peter Wilhousky, and “America, the Beautiful”, as arranged by Carmen Dragon.

The concert is a result of a celebration of the close working relationship between the Abilene Community Band and McMurry University. Both the Abilene Community Band and the McMurry Wind Ensemble rehearse in the newly remodeled Bynum Band Hall on the McMurry campus.
