Canceled - Step Into Spring
CANCELED. Seth Wollam, athletic band director at Linfield College, will conduct an afternoon of spring-themed concert wind band music. Doors open at 1:15 PM and guitarist David Drury and bassist Justin Francoeur will offer a concert prelude of jazz classics and original compositions starting at 1:30 PM. The concert is free thanks to the loyal supporters of the NCSB. Linfield College athletic band director Seth Wollam is a conductor, researcher, and educator. He’s held conducting and band positions in Pennsylvania, Texas, and Colorado, and is currently completing his DMA at the University of North Texas. All pieces on the April 19 concert have some connection with the theme of “Step into Spring.”
