On Thursday, April 15, the Catawba College Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Etters, associate professor of music, will embark on its "Springtime in the Carolinas" tour. Approximately 30 students, with majors as diverse as Biology and Environmental Science, in addition to Music and Music Education, will present concerts in Concord, Rock Hill, Florence, and North Charleston before returning to the Catawba campus on Sunday, April 18.

The ensemble will feature works from George Kenny, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Percy Grainger, Ernesto Lecuona, and Sir Arthur Sullivan. At each stop along the way, Dr. Etters and other faculty traveling on the tour will conduct "master classes" for local high school students.

Tyler Howe, a Music Education major from Spencer notes: "This tour will help us build the ensemble. It helps spread our name and helps us recruit student musicians to Catawba." Tyler plays trumpet with the ensemble.

"It's exciting and a great thing for the Music Department," adds Robert Burgess, a percussionist and chemistry major from Rockwell.
