The final piece of the concert is the world premiere performance of an original arrangement by Wisconsin Lutheran College student Daniel Hofmann, who will also conduct the piece. "Polka Medley" takes the standard polkas from the bandstand to the concert hall. The medley includes the "Pennsylvania Polka," "Just Because Polka," "The Beer Barrel Polka" and "The Chicken Dance."
