The concert will be under the direction of the Western's Director of Bands Michael Flynn, Ph.D., as well as the conducting talents of Western Brass Band Emeritus conductor, Steve Asheim and guest conductor Chevy Chevilard.

The program will feature “Festive Overture,” and music from “Les Mis” and the “Children of Sanchez.” The second half of the program will be a tribute to Mr. John Kincaid, featuring works such as the “Kincaid’s Rhapsody,” “It is Well With My Soul”and the “Land of the Long White Cloud,” among others.
