Calkin is a professor of music and director of bands at Wayne State.

Repertoire explores darkness through sound. “Journey” by Brian Sadler portrays a haunting odyssey while “ElevenTwelve” by Joanna Ross Hersey delivers the meditative peace of a medieval convent. “The Robots are Taking Over” by Brooke Pierson is an intense adventure with “Triumph of the Demon Gods” by John Stevens depicting a lyrical battle between good and evil. At last, the audience can revel in nature’s grandeur through Neal Corwell’s “New England Reveries.”
