Winds & Percussion
Stars, Stripes and Sousa!
The UT Arlington Wind Symphony presents an old-fashioned band concert in the tradition of "March King" John Philip Sousa on Sunday afternoon, September 14 at 3pm. Overtures, soloists, and of course, marches! The concert will be presented "on the lawn" in the Architecture Courtyard at the corner of Nedderman Drive and Greek Row Drive. Rain location is next door in Texas Hall. Ample free parking is available. Concert-goers are invited to bring their blankets or lawn chairs but there will also be limited chair seating. Children of all ages are welcome - there will be free lemonade and ice cream for everyone! Free admission.
TMEA All-State Music Clinic
The Wind and Percussion faculty of UTA are happy to offer their annual clinic on the TMEA all-state music. The free clinic will be held on the morning of Saturday, September 20. It's a great opportunity to get off to a good start on preparation for region and state auditions!
The Band Program at the University of Texas Arlington is a comprehensive program encompassing all types of performing organizations and opportunities. In our three concert ensembles and marching band, we strive to provide positive musical opportunities that are important for those students who are preparing for careers in music as well as those non-majors who simply enjoy performing. No matter what your major, you will find the UTA Bands to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
