Seymour native Whitney Pottschmidt and the University Symphonic Band of Concordia University, Nebraska, will perform its fall concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday at St. John Lutheran Church in Seward, Nebraska.

The wind ensemble and symphonic band both will be playing throughout the evening.

The program includes three marches: “Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite,” “On the Mall” and “Circus Day.” Also featured will be Carmen Dragon’s arrangement of “America the Beautiful,” Samuel Hazo’s “Ride” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
