The concert, which will explore “the history of band and wind ensemble repertoire,” according to Wolynec, will feature Antonin Dvorak's “Serenade in D minor, Op. 44,” Julius Fucik's “Florentiner March,” Gustav Holst's “Hammersmith” and Richard Wagner's “Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral” from “Lohengrin”—one of the highlights of Saturday's Holiday Gala concert.

•The Clarksville Community Chorus, part of the Community School of the Arts at APSU, will present a concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Dec. 13. The Chorus will perform a program of sacred and secular music by a variety of composers, such as Brahms, Jungst and Schein. The repertoire also will feature lighter, familiar pieces, such as “Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Jingle Bell Rock.” The group of 19 local singers is directed by Valerie Oyen-Larsen and accompanied by Anne Glass.

All concerts will be presented in the music/mass communication building concert theatre. Admission is free and open to the public.
