University Wind Ensemble *Note: actual end time may vary.*

Matthew Sadowski, music director

The UC Berkeley Wind Ensemble is offered for the study and practice of traditional and contemporary wind band repertoire. The Wind Ensemble's long history at Cal dates back to before the 1930s, when the group was directed by Charles Cushing. In 1950, James Berdahl assumed the directorship and remained until the late 1970s. The Wind Ensemble's activities were revived when Robert Calonico took over as Director of Bands in 1995. The Wind Ensemble performs regularly on campus and beyond, including at least once per semester in Hertz Hall.

Mar 17, 3pm to 4pm, Hertz Concert Hall
