Wayne State College band

The Wayne State College Brass and Percussion concert integrates atypical music for brass with vividly expressive percussion selections. This event is free and open to the public.

The Brass Knuckles Quintet plays the music of John Sebastian Bach, Georges Bizet, and a set of harmonically engaging madrigals. The low brass studio class also performs. Both groups are directed by Dr. Josh Calkin, WSC Director of Bands.

Directed by adjunct professor Brad Weber, the percussion ensembles incorporate accessory instruments with the traditional. Selections include "Avalanche Lake by Patrick Speranza," which reflects the quiet beauty and exuberant waterfalls of Glacier National Park and the spirited French carol "Ding! Dong! Merrily on High" arranged by Murray Houllif.
