The Wisconsin Wind Orchestra will present a concert at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, 2002, in the Humphrey Memorial Chapel on the Carroll College campus.
This performance is the first since the group's return from a European tour that took it to cities throughout Holland in May 2002. That tour culminated in a live radio show on National Dutch Radio broadcast from the famed Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
The Nov. 17 concert will feature music from Mozart's popular opera, "Don Giovanni." Also included will be 18th century music by Beethoven and Franz Krommer.
Founded in 1995, the Wisconsin Wind Orchestra is a unique ensemble that features some of the finest musicians in southeast Wisconsin. Its repertoire spans a wide range of works from Mozart and Brahms to Varese and contemporary composers.
The orchestra will be conducted by Dr. Lawrence Harper, director of bands and chair of the music department at Carroll College.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors. Call the Carroll College box office at 524-7633 or purchase at the door.

The Wisconsin Wind Orchestra was established in 1995 and became the resident professional ensemble of Carroll University in 1998. The group features some of the finest musicians in southeast Wisconsin, many of whom are on the applied music faculty at Carroll University, and is recognized as one of the only ensembles of its kind in the world.
The ensemble builds on the tradition of musical excellence found in major symphony orchestras, the innovation of wind groups such as the Eastman Wind Ensemble and Netherlands Wind Ensemble and the technical versatility of the premier military bands.
