     HAMMOND – “The Magical Music of Disney and Friends,” a concert by the award-winning Southeastern Louisiana University Wind Symphony, will be presented in two separate performances at the Pottle Music Building Auditorium on campus Saturday, Nov. 5.
     Designed for Disney and Pixar enthusiasts of all ages, the concerts will be held at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Tickets are $4 for general admission seating for attendees of any age. The box office will open at 11 a.m.
     “This has become our most popular concert of the season,” said conductor and Director of Bands Glen Hemberger. “Our student musicians enjoy this concert as much as any other they present during the year. It’s entertaining, it’s magical, and it’s a great opportunity to learn about the wind band and the music of Disney.”
     He said many of the Disney characters – including Aladdin, Elsa, Belle, Jack Sparrow and Maleficent – will be in the lobby after each concert to meet the younger audience members.
     The program will include music from “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Pixar Movie Magic,” the “Incredibles,” “Frozen,” “Beauty and the Beast” and a medley from “Aladdin.”
     Also on the program are the main theme from “Star Wars” and a medley from “The Lion King.”
     The Southeastern Wind Symphony has been recognized in recent years with two Global Music Awards for its CD recording “Live.” A second CD is being produced from performances in Orchestra Hall in Chicago and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC.
