MILWAUKEE – The Wisconsin Lutheran College Concert Band will present the Winter Concert Sunday, December 13 at 3:00 p.m. in the Schwan Concert Hall.

The program will open with a fanfare type piece titled Signature by Jan Van der Roost. The next selection, Sun Dance, is by popular American wind band composer Frank Ticheli. Ralph Vaughan Williams, the famous English composer, wrote Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus. The first half of the program ends with Procession To the End of Time by Czechoslovakian composer Vaclav Nelhybel.

The program continues with An Original Suite by Gordon Jacob. One of the most popular of all American theater productions is Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story.
