Unsuspecting occupants and visitors to Howe Hall last Friday morning were treated to a 45-minute indoor concert by Iowa State's Symphonic Band, including performances by its woodwind and brass choirs. Professor of music Michael Golemo directs the band. After a year of practicing in small groups, April 16 marked the band's first concert of the year. Initially scheduled outdoors on the library quad, the event was chased indoors by a fickle April forecast.
