The Wind Ensemble and Wind Orchestra end their season with a concert featuring percussionist John Astaire.

Astaire will be featured in solo compositions with accompaniment by both the Wind Ensemble and Wind Orchestra. The concert will also include exciting new and traditional compositions for concert band and wind ensemble; works that showcase the talent and virtuosity of the student instrumentalists involved in the Cal Poly band program.
