VALPARAISO | Windiana Concert Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Memorial Opera House. The topic is women, and Windiana will present music written by female composers.

The program includes a new work by Meredith Brammeier, "Stitches in Time," that is based on quilt patterns. Also on the program is "Fascinating Ribbons" by Joan Tower, one of America’s most acclaimed composers. "Fascinating Ribbons" was inspired by the popular George Gershwin work "Fascinating Rhythms." The concert will conclude with Julie Giroux’s three-movement symphony "No Finer Calling," which was commissioned by the US Air Force Band to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Air Force.

Guest soloist will be Dr. Stephanie Frye, tuba, performing "Ursa" by award-winning composer Libby Larsen.

The next concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27, "Around the World in 80 Minutes." The concert band will travel the world with music representing many countries, including Greece, USA, China, Africa, France, Germany and Australis.
