The public is invited. Admission is free.

The first half of the concert features the Wind Symphony, conducted by Stephen Ward. The Wind Symphony will perform several selections, including a Bach setting in which the audience will be invited to participate.

The second half will be a presentation of Maurice Durufle's "Requiem." The College Chorus and Chapel Choir will combine for the choral ensemble. Janice Beck, who is coming from Ann Arbor as a guest artist, will accompany the piece at the organ.
