Zoierae Hill, Reporter

The band is introducing a dinner concert fundraiser to raise funds for larger instruments such as timpanis and sousaphones, and food for events such as Marching Band Camp and the Carb Dinner.

The Intermediate Band, Concert Band I-IV and Wind Ensemble will each put on a short program in the Clarence T.C. Ching Student Center while attendees enjoy dinner.

The program this year includes a collection of pieces from the “Wizard of Oz” and its various adaptations such as “The Muppets” and “Wicked.”

The final ticket price has not yet been decided but is projected to be about $15-$20 per ticket. The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 24. Walk-ins are welcome but limited.
