On August 26 at 7:30 pm the Leeds Arts Council will host the Birmingham Wind Ensemble’s tribute to Mr. DeWitt Self, retired band director for Leeds High School for 35 years. Mr. Self was also the former conductor of the Birmingham Wind Ensemble for 12 years. In December of 2013, Mr. Self decided to retire for a second time.
The Birmingham Wind Ensemble is an all-volunteer group of musicians that perform modern and traditional music in the concert band repertoire. Entering it’s 20th year, the Birmingham Wind Ensemble has firmly established itself as a cultural organization in the Birmingham area. The BWE is under the current direction of Mr. Jack Rudisell, a Leeds native and former student of Mr. Self.
The concert is free. For more information call 205-699-1892.
