The Shorecrest High School Wind Ensemble, directed by Dave Johnson, will share the stage with the Concert Band. The ensemble will perform Alfred Reed’s “Hounds of Spring” as a part of their presentation.
The guest soloist is trombonist Gretchen Hopper, a former student of Shorecrest High School.

She will play the “Trombone Concerto” by Rimsky-Korsakov with the Shoreline Concert Band. Her appearance is made possible by a grant from the Shoreline/LFP Arts Council.
