THOUSAND OAKS, CA - California Lutheran University’s Wind Ensemble will present the fifth annual PRISM Concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 24, in Samuelson Chapel.

The program’s continuous rotation of music is designed to provide audiences with the complete spectrum of sound for woodwind, brass and percussion. The eclectic program will also spotlight student soloists and chamber ensembles. Michael D. Hart will conduct.

The program will feature traditional favorites for concert band that include Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “English Folk Song Suite,” Norman Dello Joio’s “Satiric Dances” and John Philip Sousa’s march “High School Cadets.” New works will include Dana Wilson’s jazz-inspired “Shortcut Home” and Aaron Perrine’s “Only Light.”

As director of bands, Hart conducts the Wind Ensemble, the Pep Band and the Chamber Winds Ensemble, which he founded. He also teaches courses in music theory and ear training and provides lessons in trombone, euphonium and tuba. He has initiated several community outreach concerts and commissioned several new works for band since coming to Cal Lutheran and is active throughout Southern California as a guest conductor and adjudicator.

This year’s concert is held in honor of Richard and Anita Londgren of Thousand Oaks for their generous support of the Music Department.

Donations will be accepted.

Samuelson Chapel is located at 165 Chapel Lane on the Thousand Oaks campus. Additional parking is available at the corner of Olsen Road and Mountclef Boulevard.
