STANDISH — The Standish-based East Shore Wind Symphony is teaming up with the Mt. Pleasant cappella chorus, the MountainTown Singers, and the Northeast Michigan Arts Council to wrap up its wind symphony season.

The two groups will perform April 25 at 8 p.m. at the Mt. Pleasant High School Performing Arts Center, and again April 29 at 3 p.m. at the Standish-Sterling high school. Dr. David Gillingham is composing the program.

Admission to the concerts is $5, and they are available at the door one hour before the performances.

Songs include a mix of music, from vocal arrangements of songs such as “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Almost Like Being in Love,” from instrumental works such as Gustav Holst’s “Second Suite in F for Military Band.”

Doug Burtch, artistic director for the East Shore Wind Symphony, said the 50 member ensemble has had a very successful two years, and already is planning the concert series starting in November.
