The Middleton High School Wind Ensemble will host the UW-Eau Claire Wind Symphony in a joint concert on March 10 beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center.
The concert is free and open to the public.
MHS band director Brad Schneider met UW-Eau Claire professor John Stewart two years ago on a trip to Minneapolis and the band stopped at the university for a clinic on the way.
"We decided that it would be proper to reciprocate,'' Schneider said.
The UWEC Wind Symphony includes approximately 60 undergraduate student musicians who perform as a full wind symphony under the direction of Stewart. The Wind Symphony is comprised of the most outstanding wind and percussion majors in the Department of Music and Theatre Arts and gifted non-music majors who are selected by audition each semester.
