The Coe College Concert Band and Jazz Band will perform in concert as part of Coe Family Weekend on Saturday, Oct. 25, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Sinclair Auditorium. The family-friendly concert is free and open to the public.

Under the direction of William Carson, the Concert Band will perform something for everyone. From a Swiss fanfare, to an homage to the view of the prairie along Highway 30, from a setting of an Irish folk tune to a rock-inspired percussion feature, this concert will offer something for listeners of all ages.

The Jazz Band, conducted by Steve Shanley, will perform works by Count Basie, Thelonious Monk, Fred Sturm, and Center Point composer, Paul Clark.
