For this unique concert, the San Jose Wind Symphony's own musician-members have chosen the works to be played. Among the favorites picked by the players are Bach's Fugue à la Gigue and Liszt's Les Preludes. The lively program, entitled The Musician's World, will also find the SJWS sharing the stage with a guest ensemble -- the inspired, virtuosic Quadre Horn Quartet performing Schumann's Konzertstück. These funny and highly entertaining French horn masters have won awards and played concerts across the country. Learn More
