Schmitt to perform with Concordia symphonic band
Concordia University, Nebraska’s Symphonic Band will give its final concert of the season on Friday, April 13, at 7 p.m. in the Seward High School auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.
Sarah Schmitt, a senior from Grant is a member of the symphonic band.
The band will cap off the year and its recent tour by performing tour songs as well as new pieces under the direction of Andrew Schultz, assistant professor of music. Student directors also will lead the ensemble in several numbers.
For seniors, this concert marks the end of their involvement in the Symphonic Band.
“This concert comes at the end of a string of lasts–last tour concert, last Christmas at Concordia,” said senior Danielle Masur of David City. “Because of that, the sadness of leaving the program hasn’t had to hit all at once, so I think this last concert will just add to the good memories of band.”
