    The highly acclaimed Shepherd University Wind Ensemble and the Shepherd University Symphonic Band, under the direction of Dr. Scott Hippensteel, will perform a concert entitled "La Fiesta Mexicana" featuring the famous work for band by H. Owen Reed, on Friday, April 7 at 8:00 p.m. in the Frank Arts Center Theater. Also on the program is Aaron Copland's "Quiet City" with Shepherd faculty soloists Greg Shook on oboe and Wayne Cameron on trumpet. Free with admission is a pre-concert lecture about the works beginning at 7:15 p.m.

    A great way to derive even more enjoyment from the performance, the audience is invited to spend time with conductor Dr. Hippensteel and the musicians learning about and hearing excerpts from the program of exciting concert music to follow.

    Admission and seating for La Fiesta Mexicana is on a first come-first serve basis and advance sales or reservations are not available. The box office will open one hour prior to each performance. General admission is $10, $5 for faculty/staff, Shepherd alumni, senior citizens and students 18 and under, and free for Shepherd students with Rambler ID. For more information call 304-876-5555 or visit www.shepherd.edu/music.
