Before Brazil . . .

It’ll be a makeover of the cultural and musical kind.  The WIU Wind Ensemble Brazil Tour group gathered for one final rehearsal Thursday night, then packed up their instruments one last time before trekking to Brazil.

Excitement was in the air tonight as final details were ironed out and one additional piece of music was added to the repertoire. Tour t-shirts were distributed to the entire group, thanks to University Bands, and with them the suggestion to pack a bottle of Febreeze (the shirts will be worn for every performance in Brazil).

The travelers will gather at 6:30 a.m. tomorrow to board a bus for Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.  From there, they’ll fly first to Atlanta, then on to Rio de Janeiro.  And from there, the fun begins!
