The concert will endeavor to set aside expectations and stereotypes about wind concerts with a program that merges more than 300 years of music -- from the classical works of J .S. Bach, Aleksander Tansman and Alvin Etler to the jazz improvisations of Hoagy Carmichael, Errol Garner and Charlie Parker.   This departure from standard classical repertoire, which stems from Walzel's experience as a jazz saxophonist, will feature such jazz favorites as "Misty," "Stardust" and "Scrapple From the Apple".  

Tickets for the concert are $10 for adults and $5 for students and are currently on sale.   UTD ticket office hours are from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and at the door one hour prior to show time.   To purchase tickets during office hours or to make a reservation at other times, please call 972-883-2787.
