Come Together: Ann Arbor Concert Band and the men's choral society Measure for Measure join together for a concert


Ann Arbor Concert Band practicing

When we think of Ann Arbor traditions, the usual suspects pop up: Zingerman’s, Ann Arbor Art Fair, Top of the Park, Hash Bash, U-M football.

Maybe the Ann Arbor Concert Band isn’t as high profile as the institutions listed above, but it has been carving out its own tradition by bringing affordable, high-quality classical music concerts to the community for the past 40 years.

The men’s choral society Measure for Measure has also long established itself, singing together since 1998.

These two musical institutions are coming together March 10 at Hill Auditorium to present a concert dubbed “Festive Winds and Voices.”

The consort will perform Shostakovich’s “Festive Overture,” Bernstein’s “3 Dance Episodes From On the Town,” Eric Whitacre’s “Cloudburst,” Kalinnikov’s “Finale From Symphony No. 1,” John Williams’ “Hymn to the Fallen,” Rollo Dilworth’s “Walk in Jerusalem,” Leon Dubinsky’s “We Rise Again,” “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” and more. 

Sunday, March 10, 2:00 pm, Hill Auditorium. Tickets; $10 – adults; $5 - seniors/ students; children under 12 - FREE. Tickets available from band members, online at, at the Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO) or at the Hill Auditorium box office beginning at 1:00 pm, Sunday, March 10.
