The CMU Wind Symphony concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 4, at Robinson Theatre in the university’s Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St.

The Wind Symphony will be “performing fun and uplifting music,” with a new composition by Justin Freer as the featured piece, according to a news release.

” ‘Rio’s Convergence’ depicts in sound, the Rio Grande River from its life in the north to the smashing gores of Colorado to the sublime panoramas of Texas, converging with many rivers along the way,” the release said.

The symphonic suite from “Robin Hood Price of Thieves” will conclude the concert.

The Colorado Mesa University Chamber Choir will present its closing spring concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 6, in the center’s Recital Hall.

A variety of music will be performed along with the world-premiere of a piece composed by student Chris Arroyo.

Tickets for each of the concerts are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students and children.
