The Vermont Wind Ensemble, directed by Alan Parshley, will perform a free concert, “Myths and Legends,” on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 3 pm in the University of Vermont’s Music Department Recital Hall.

The performance opens with John Philip Sousa’s “Nobles of the Mystic Shrine,” his tribute to the Shriners. Alfred Reed’s “A Northern Legend” is a musical portrait of an ancient Native American legend from the lake region of northern Minnesota, and John Williams’ music from the film “The Cowboys” takes the audience on a spirited romp in the old West. The program closes with original music by Johan de Meij, inspired by Tolkien’s trilogy “The Lord of the Rings.”
