The concert program, “Calling, Ever Calling,” is named for the main piece that the wind ensemble will be performing — an oboe concerto written by Dana Wilson. The concerto will feature Sarah Southard, instructor of oboe at Hope, who will be presenting the pre-concert remarks, focused on the Wilson piece.

The ensemble will also be playing several chamber works, including Mozart’s “Overture to La Clemenza di Tito” and Ewazen’s “Symphony in Brass.” The percussion section will be featured in its own piece, and the program will conclude with “Dance Movements” by Phillip Sparke.
