Iowa City Orchestra, Choir and Wind Band is an extraordinary group of more than 100 energetic young people who play wonderful music.

Tonight they present a glorious mix of British and American music in different genres, ranging from Vaughan Williams, Tchaikovsky and Holst to Sousa and Craig Hella Johnson, not forgetting Wilkousky’s Battle Hymn of the Republic.


Prepare to be surprised and delighted by the sheer skill and enthusiasm of these 14 to 19 year olds.


A concert for everyone – and we particularly welcome young people, their schools and families.
