UMD Wind Ensemble: Big City Lights
- The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, and Online

Leonard Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story transcribed for winds by Paul Lavender will be the highlight of the concert. Some of the other works featured will include Scott Boerma's Cityscape composed for a performance in Carnegie Hall, and a piece inspired by the hip-hop sub-genre "trap music" of Atlanta, Georgia—the hometown of composer Marie A. Douglas.
