The performing arts are a menas by which we can look inward in study of the self. The works of John Mackey and David Maslanka have pushed the wind band medium and its possibilities. The Wind Orchestra and Wind Ensemble will end their season of concerts with a program of compositions--both familiar and new--with the aim of extending our thoughts skyward, toward the future, and into our dreams.
