  • Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
  • Location: Center for Faith and Life: In person tickets are only available for current Luther students, faculty, and staff.

The Luther College Wind & Percussion Ensemble will present a program on Sunday, April 18th at 12:00pm. It will include compositions by John Zdechlik (Celebrations), Erika Svanoe (Four Grainger Songs, featuring Professor Emily Dirks, voice), and David Maslanka (Give Us This Day: Short Symphony). This event will be livestreamed and can be viewed on the Luther College Music Department YouTube Channel.


The Wind and Percussion Ensemble consists primarily of outstanding band students. Membership is determined by audition, which occur at the start of each semester. The ensemble is limited to approximately 50 students with a controlled instrumentation who rehearse three days a week. The size and quality of the ensemble allows an intense attitude in terms of rehearsal and performance material. In addition to Family Weekend performances and Dorian Band Festival performance, the Wind and Percussion ensemble performs in chapel and gives a full concert each semester.

The 2020-2021 Luther College Wind and Percussion Ensemble is directed by Cory Near.
