August to April Series
Festival Concert Hall
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Conducted by Jerry Junkin, the University of Texas Wind Ensemble has firmly established itself as one of America’s elite wind bands. The Wind Ensemble made its international debut at the Fifth Conference of the World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles in Manchester, England in 1991, and its New York debut at Carnegie Hall in February 1998. The ensemble continues to perform nationally and internationally.
James Dick, University of Texas Distinguished Alumnus (2009) and Founder and Artistic Director of Round Top Festival Institute will greet the audience and give a brief history of Festival Hill before welcoming the UT Wind Ensemble. Texas Exes are encouraged to wear their school colors and "turn the hall orange."
Concert tickets will be held at the will call table on the West side of the concert hall. Doors open 1 hour prior to the concert. Tickets will also be available at the door. General seating.
Lunch will be available prior to the concert at 12:45 PM in the Menke House Dining Hall, by reservation only. Purchase meals here. The buffet-style pre-concert meal has become a favorite among concertgoers. Menu includes Roast Beef au Jus, Jalapeno au Gratin Potatoes, Creamed Sweet Corn, Deluxe Salad Bar, Homemade Yeast Rolls, Sweet Homemade Carrot Cake, Tea and Coffee.
Overnight accommodations are available on campus for this concert weekend.
