McMurry University Wind Ensemble to Give Free Concert


ABILENE, Texas – If you have ever wanted to participate “hands-on” at a band concert, here is your chance! The McMurry University Wind Ensemble will perform “Children’s Concert” at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 28, at Radford Auditorium on the McMurry campus. The concert is free and open to the public.

The interactive concert will give the audience the opportunity to participate with sound effects on Eric Whitacre’s “Ghost Train.” At the end of the concert, children “young and old” will have the opportunity to take turns conducting the Wind Ensemble during a set of marches by John Philip Sousa.

The concert will feature the Fifth Grade Math/Science Magnet Class and oboe player Patrick Cheney, winner of the McMurry concerto competition. Cheney is a graduate of Abilene Cooper High School.

Free ice cream will be served on the front lawn of Radford after the concert, which will last one hour.

For more information, please contact David Robinson, Director of Bands at McMurry, at 325-793-4867.
