Young Harris College senior music major Tara Shiver, clarinet, of Covington, and music education major Sam Wolaver, trombone, of Mansfield, will perform at "An Evening of Fare and Flare" on Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in Glenn Auditorium of the Clegg Fine Arts Building on the Young Harris College campus. Shiver is a graduate of Newton High School.

"This concert will be a celebration of wind band songs and dances that will demonstrate the technical finesse of the individual musicians," said YHC Senior Instructor of Music and Director of Bands Mary Land.

Under the direction of Land, the 54-member Young Harris College Concert Band's final fall performance will spotlight YHC Adjunct Instructor of Music Eric Brown, percussion, in Ney Rosauro's concerto for marimba and band.

The program will include exciting wind band pieces like Wang Hesheng's "Beautiful Evening of Prairie," Hugh Stuart's "A Hymn for Band" and Carl Strommen's "Prairiesong." The show will conclude with a performance of Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" to ring in the holiday season.

A holiday dessert reception sponsored by YHC's food service provider, Sodexo, will take place immediately following the concert in the lobby of the Clegg Fine Arts Building. The cost for this special event is $5, with proceeds going to help students fund a trip to the Georgia Music Educators Association annual conference in January 2012 in Savannah.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Young Harris College Division of Fine Arts at (706) 379-5182.
