GREEN BAY — There is something for everyone at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s upcoming Woodwind and Brass Ensemble Concert, scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 3, at Fort Howard Hall inside the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts (2420 Nicolet Drive).

The concert is free and open to the public.

With featured musical selections from a variety of styles and eras, this concert should appeal to all kinds of musical tastes, directors Eric Hansen and Adam Gaines agree.

Arrangements include Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” Bach’s “Gavotte in G Minor” and “Contrapunctus I,” Bill Holcombe’s “Gay Nineties Medley,” “Nimrod, from the Enigma Variations” by Edward Elgar, “Clair De Lune” by Claude Debussy, “A Klezmer Wedding” by Mike Curtis, “Siyahamba” (traditional) by David Marlatt, and more.

Hansen, a professor of music and a clarinetist, directs the four-member woodwind ensemble.
Gaines, a professor of music and a trumpeter, directs the seven-member brass ensemble.
