TURNER — The high school bands from Leavitt , Edward Little and Lewiston high schools will be performing a free concert with the University of Maine Symphonic Band, at 7 p.m., Friday, April 8, at the Leavitt Area High School auditorium. 

This concert is part of the University of Maine Symphonic Band’s performance tour through Southern Maine that includes 10 free public performances, school assemblies and community concerts. The University of Maine band is an auditioned group of 45 woodwind, brass and percussion performers with a repertoire that spans nearly 250 years and is conducted by Chris White, an alumnus of the Edward Little High School class of 1984.

The three high school bands will combine into one band and perform compositions by Romeyn, Shostakovich and Sousa. Then the University of Maine Symphonic Band will perform a program featuring solo competition winners Amanda Bloss and Annie Morgan in “Fandango” by Joseph Turrin, and clarinet faculty and department chair Beth Wiemann will perform the third movement of Ticheli’s “Clarinet Concerto.” Other selections to be performed on tour include works of Gorb, Sousa and Daughtrey.
