Dr. Woodridge will perform "The Life of King David" - Concerto for Marimba and Band" written for him by Minnesota composer Russell Peterson. He will also perform a medley of ragtime songs from the turn of the 20th century called "The Golden Age of Xylophone" by Floyd Werle.

Director of the band is Jerry Bertrand. The concert is open to the public, free of charge.
