Green Center, 605 S College Ave.
The DePauw University Band’s Spring Concert features standard works in the wind band repertoire, along with new works by younger composers who are beginning to make their mark, as well as arrangements adapted from the choral, operatic and orchestral genres. With such a wide variety of styles being performed, there’s bound to be something on the program that makes you want to tap your foot, move to the groove, or perhaps whistle as you walk out of the auditorium!
