In anticipation of Cal Poly Wind Ensemble's tour to the College Band Directors National Association conference in Tacoma, Washington, in March, this concert, titled "Afterimage" will feature some classics as well as new voices in writing for the wind orchestra. 

Like a flash of light against our retina, life events can leave impressions. Music is way we can share those impressions with others and extend those moments across time. The program will explore this idea through works expressing joy and wonder.
