The Studio Jazz Orchestra opens the concert, under the direction of Prof. Jeff Holmes. The Wind Ensemble takes the stage for the second half to premiere a newly commissioned work by composer David Biedenbender (his first symphony for winds!) and perform Bernstein's tour-de-force Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. What a COOL way to end the season!
