For Our Free Fall Concert

Thank you for supporting the summer portion of the 2016 South Haven Performance Series. We are pleased that our seventh season received your enthusiastic response. The attendance was record-setting.

We are now pleased to announce that our Fall concert, offered free in appreciation for your support, will feature the Western Michigan University Symphonic Band on Monday, Nov. 21, in beautiful Listiak Auditorium of South Haven High School. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The University Symphonic Band is made up of outstanding undergraduate and graduate musicians who embrace the challenge of performing the finest in wind band literature and transcriptions in a variety of concert settings. We were pleased to host the WMU Symphonic Band in 2011.

The University Symphonic Band has gained national and international prominence through performances at national conventions of the College Band Directors National Association, MENC and the Midwest Band and Orchestra Conference as well as through concert tours of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Brazil and China. Last Spring the band performed by invitation at the College Band Directors National Association North Central Division Conference at Iowa State University.

The concert will have a special hometown touch as band director, Dr. Scott Boerma, is a South Haven native having graduated from South Haven High School when his father, Bob Boerma, was director of bands. Bob Boerma is a member of the board of directors of the Performance Series.

As part of our commitment to provide performance art education opportunities for local youth, Symphonic Band members on Monday, Nov. 21, will share their talents with music students in the South Haven school system.
