The North Idaho College Wind Symphony will present “Springtime with the Classics” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 14 in the Boswell Hall Schuler Performing Arts Center.

Attendees at the North Idaho College Wind Symphony’s performance of “Springtime with the Classics” Wednesday, April 15, will enjoy a diversified array of classical music.

“We will cover the whole range from intense pieces to fanfare to Russian folk,” said NIC Band Director Terry Jones.

The NIC Wind Symphony plays orchestra pieces that are transcribed for band, which is why the group is called a wind symphony.

The concert will feature a performance of Nicholas Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Procession of the Nobles,” from the opera “Mlada.”

The group will also perform Camille Saint-Saens’ “Danse Bacchanale” from “Samson and Dalila” as well as Aram Khachaturian’s “Gayaneh Dance Suite No. 1” and Dmitri Shostakovich’s “Symphony No. 5—Finale.”

Lakeland High School band and choir director Mark Sescilla will be featured in the Carl Maria von Weber piece “Concertino for Clarinet Op. 26.”

The concert is free and open to the public and will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the NIC Boswell Hall Schuler Performing Arts Center.

Information: (208) 769-3276.
