The Roanoke College Wind Ensemble is open to all students who participated in their former school's concert band. Repertoire performed throughout the year is chosen from the master works of the wind band literature. Arrangements of important compositions for other media are performed-and some are especially written for this ensemble. Academic credit is available.
The former studio arts major at Roanoke College designs and builds custom puppets for his clients from his basement workshop in Roanoke. He founded Thistledown Puppets in 2006.
