The Shippensburg University Marching Band, Concert Band and Jazz and Wind Ensembles are getting ready to spring into their concerts for the remainder of the semester.
The SU Wind Ensemble and Concert Band will perform Sunday at 3 p.m. in the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center. The jazz ensemble will perform the following night at 7 p.m. in the Tuscarora Room of Reisner Dining Hall.
On Saturday, April 13, the SU Marching Band will perform at the Seth Grove Stadium in support of the football team for the spring game.
The next few weeks of the spring semester will be busy for the SU music department. Both of the spring ensembles meet weekly to rehearse, and although snow cancellations limited rehearsal time for each of the ensembles throughout the spring, they are not deterred.
Freshman marching band treasurer Emily Osilka is anticipating the upcoming performances to show how hard the groups worked this semester.
“I’m really looking forward to our upcoming concerts that are in just about a week, so we are able to show everyone what we have been working on since the beginning of the semester,” Osilka said.
