LOGAN - Utah State University’s Department of Music presents “The Final Star,” the last USU Symphonic Band concert of the academic year, Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall of the Chase Fine Arts Center.

“The concert will place the audience in a setting where the music flies into space and back with the band arrangements bringing out the colors of space,” said Greg Wheeler, assistant professor in the Caine College of the Arts.

Music of the stars will be performed, including “Star Above, Shine Brightly” by Brian Balmages, “Toward a Northern Star” by Gary Gilroy and “Shooting Stars” by Richard Saucedo, among other works. Also performing in the concert are the Brass Choir and Trombone Ensemble, two chamber ensembles in the Department of Music.

Conducted by Wheeler, the USU Symphonic Band is composed of 70 students across campus from all academic majors. With no pre-requisite for admission and an audition for chair placement, the band allows students to continue their band participation while also pursuing a degree in the program of their choice.

“The Final Star” on Tuesday, April 16, is free and open to the public. For more information visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website (
