The Central Iowa Wind Ensemble brings you its season finale Spring Concert featuring an array of classic wind band literature: from Rimsky-Korsakov’s majestic Procession of the Nobles to Grainger’s melodic Colonial Song, the energetic Overture to Candide by Bernstein to a rousing Sousa march and more. The ensemble will also accompany guest trombone soloist, Eli Blay, this year’s winner of CIWE’s annual Student Solo Competition, playing Blue Bells of Scotland.  You’ll be sure to come away from this concert with your spirits lifted.

This family friendly event will be held in the historic and beautiful Scottish Rite Consistory Auditorium (519 Park Ave, Des Moines). We hope to see you there!
