Let Freedom Ring--these words are as true today as they were in 1776! On May 19th, Encore Symphonic Winds, conducted by Dr. Timothy Topolewski, will perform some of the most stirring and emblematic music of this important time in the history of the United States of America!
This concert features Carmen Dragon's America the Beautiful, as well as American Overture for Band by Jenkins.

The quintet is a group from Encore Symphonic Winds whose members are Peg Kroll-Flute, Margie Tropf-Oboe, Kiane Kolak-Horn, Steve Gilbreath-Clarinet and Ted Kroll-Bassoon.
