SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — An all-American night of rousing band music will be performed by the Brigham Young University-Idaho Wind Ensemble on Wednesday, May 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

The Wind Ensemble is the premiere concert band from BYU-Idaho located in Rexburg, Idaho. It features more than 40 of the university’s finest woodwind, brass and percussion players, dedicated young musicians who represent what is best in the students of BYU-Idaho.

Under the direction of Diane Soelberg, the ensemble tours both domestically and internationally, performing for public schools, universities, communities and invitational conferences sponsored by state, national and professional organizations.
