Symphony performing five-year anniversary show Sunday in Standish


STANDISH — Fresh off its spring tour, the East Shore Wind Symphony is returning to Standish April 27, where it will perform its fifth-anniversary concert in the Standish-Sterling Central auditorium.

Symphony conductor Doug Burtch said Sunday’s concertgoers can expect the same show that people at Bay City Western, Manistee, Cadillac and Suttons Bay watched and enjoyed.

“It’s the same show we took on tour and it was very well-received,” he said.

A press release from the East Shore Wind Symphony said the show will include a tribute performance of “Canterbury Chorale,” which will be given to celebrate the career of SSC music teacher Mark Lundgren.

“Mark has been a tremendous friend of the East Shore Wind Symphony and to the arts community in the greater Arenac County area,” Burtch said in the press release. “We are happy to give a musical ‘tip of the hat’ to Mark as he celebrates his pending retirement and we celebrate our fifth year.”

Tickets will be available at the door. Prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students. The concert begins at 3 p.m.

The East Shore Wind Symphony is composed mostly of current or retired music instructors from different areas throughout the state of Michigan, as well as a few college students.
