The California State University, Sacramento Symphonic Wind Ensemble will give local audiences a chance to experience its forthcoming Carnegie Hall performance on Monday, March 29, 7:30 p.m., in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall, two weeks before the ensemble steps onstage in New York.

“If you can’t make it to Carnegie Hall, here’s your to catch our performance of some really wonderful, interesting, and exciting works of music,” said ensemble conductor Robert Halseth, director of wind studies at CSUS. “We’re at the top of our game right now and it should be a magnificent evening.”

The ensemble received a special invitation to perform during the New York Wind Band Festival at Carnegie Hall on April 13 and will entertain the audience with pieces by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Leonard Bernstein, Eric Whitacre, Joseph Schwanter and Donald Grantham. Sacramento audiences will hear the same performance plus get a few extras the people in Carnegie Hall won’t get to hear.

“I’m going to take a little more time and discuss the pieces a bit in this concert,” Halseth said.

Tickets are $8 general admission and $5 for students and seniors and are available at the CSUS Ticket Office, (916) 278-4323, or at The concert is part of the 12th annual Festival of the Arts at CSUS.

The University is still seeking contributions to help pay for the ensemble’s trip to Carnegie Hall. To help out, call (916) 278-5547. Media assistance is available from CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.

This concert was scheduled for Tuesday, March 30 but was rescheduled after the CSUS School of the Arts calendar went to press. The correct date is Monday, March 29.
