Rewind: Jardim Botânico performance caps tour

WIU Wind Ensemble at Jardim Botânico, Rio de Janeiro

On the final day of a whirlwind tour through Salvador and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the WIU Wind Ensemble added aural beauty to a magnificent natural setting at Jardim Botânico, or the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden.  As the sun took a welcome descent in the four o’clock hour, the heat subsided just enough for a comfortable outdoor performance among flora, fauna, and an appreciative crowd of onlookers.  Following the performance, the WIU percussionists took one final opportunity to share their talent with local children.
