ROCK ISLAND - Lindsay Hohertz of Mendota will tour Japan with the Augustana Symphonic Band Feb. 21-March 4. The band will perform four concerts while in Japan and will perform a home concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 15 in Augustana’s Centennial Hall.
The Augustana Symphonic Band is the college’s oldest music ensemble, dating back to 1874. The band held its first formal concert in Clark’s Hall in Paxton prior to the college’s move to its Rock Island campus in 1875. Dr. James Lambrecht, professor of music and director of bands at Augustana, has directed the band since 1988.
While in Japan, the band will perform concerts and participate in exchanges with other bands in Osaka and Tokyo.
