Laura_KramerThe performing arts are a means by which humanity moves itself beyond the earthly or the mundane. We strive for our highest form of expression through dance, theater and music. The works of David Maslanka and Alex Shapiro have pushed the possibilities of the wind band medium. Laura Kramer, lecturer of saxophone and founding member of the Los Angeles based Noir Quartet, will be featured guest artist on James Stephenson's "Möbius Trip." The Wind Orchestra and Wind Ensemble will end the season of performances with a program of compositions — familiar and new — that aim to extend our thoughts skyward, toward the future and into our dreams.
