The Laurentian Concert Band presents its year-end concert, “A Night on Lake Ramsey,” March 29.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium at the university's Alphonse Raymond Building. 

The band has created a program that evokes the darkness, the romance, and the mystery of evenings on the water, including such diverse selections as “Star Dance”, “All Through the Night” arranged by jazz great Sammy Nestico, and the rousing “Treasure Island” among others. 

A highlight of the evening will be the world premiere performance of Frederic Chopin's “Nocturne, Op. 9, No. 2,” which was arranged especially for our concert band by our very own principal horn, Max Moote. 

Now in its eleventh year, the Laurentian Concert Band is directed by Sally Lesk. 

It consists of 40 musicians – woodwinds, brasses, percussion, and string bass – many of whom are majoring in music at Laurentian, with many other students who are studying in other disciplines, as well as several community members from all walks of life who share their love of performing great music.

All proceeds from the concert go to the Laurentian Percussion Fund in the Department of Music.

Admission is at the door, $10 for adults and $5 for students/seniors. Parking is free across the street from the venue.
