This concert is the culmination of a three-day festival for talented woodwind, brass and percussion students from high schools across the eastern part of the United States.
Eric Hinton, associate professor of music and director of bands at Susquehanna, will be joined by Susquehanna alumnus Nicholas Roseth '08 as guest conductor.

The concert features two honors ensembles, the Honors Wind Ensemble and the Honors Band, as well as the Honors Festival Band, which brings both groups together.
