The Youngstown Sate University Wind Ensemble performs a “Strike Up the Band 2015” concert 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2, on Harrison Common Field on Walnut Street on the YSU campus.

The free concert has a distinctly Americana repertoire, including Strike Up The Band, arranged by Warren Barker; The Star Spangled Banner: A Love Song for Our Country, arranged by Jack Stamp; The Sound of Music arranged by Robert Russell Bennett; Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa; and much more.

“Harrison Common is an outstanding venue for this music and the YSU Wind Ensemble is enthusiastically looking forward to performing under the open sky in our first concert of the semester,” said Stephen L. Gage, conductor.

Patrons are invited to bring lawn chairs and snacks. Alcohol is prohibited. In the event of inclement weather, the rain location is the Recital Hall in Bliss Hall.

Parking is available for a nominal fee in the Wick Avenue deck, accessible from Walnut Street, or in the surface lot next to Harrison Common.
