Join us for a special UMD Wind Orchestra performance featuring the talented Clarice Assad. This program will highlight works written by Asaad, including a piece arranged by UMWO’s very own Michael Votta, Jr.! Assad will also perform with UMWO as a vocalist in a work that highlights the current desperate plight of the Amazon region in her native Brazil.
