NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Wind Ensemble at Stephen F. Austin State University will present its annual "Winter Tour Concert" at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 3, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.

"We go on tour each winter to show bands around the state what SFA has to offer," said Fred J. Allen, director of bands at SFA. "This concert will give our local audience a chance to hear what the band performed for students in the schools we visited."

The program opens with "March from the Symphonic Metamorphosis" by Paul Hindemith. A highlight of the concert will be a performance of "Passacaglia" by American composer Ron Nelson.

David W. Campo, associate director of bands, will conduct Nancy Galbriath's "Danza de los Duendes." "O Magnum Mysterium" by Morten Lauridsen will be conducted by Tamey Anglley, assistant director of bands.
