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

This event was wonderful. It was a most enjoyable afternoon. The music was excellent and Dr. Harris, the conductor was a really funny guy. I would definately attend such a concert again. The San Jose Wind is a great group and very diverse.
