MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Lutheran College Concert Band will present its Winter Band Concert on Sunday, December 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Schwan Concert Hall.

The program will open with Slavia by Jan Van der Roost. Luigi Zaninelli's Three Dances of Enchantment is a suite of dances inspired by personal experiences in the composer's life.

Following intermission, the Concert Band will perform Aquarium by Johan de Meij, a suite featuring six tropical fish, each represented by a motif, in de Meij's third composition for band.

The Christmas music portion of the program opens with Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, then continues with Greensleeves (What Child is This?), Three Carols from Olde England, and A Winter's Night, which is a modern treatment of the beloved carol Silent Night.

The conductor of the WLC Concert Band is Prof. Terry Treuden. He will be assisted on the program by three student conductors: Alexander Randazzo, Charis Sharf, and Michael Werni.

The Schwan Concert Hall is located in the Center for Arts and Performance, 8815 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for students; they can be purchased from the WLC Box Office at 414.443.8802 or online.
