MITCHELL — The Wesleyan Band will embark on a mini-tour in four area communities to play at local high schools on Nov. 3 and 4, sponsored by the Ron and Sheilah Gates Department of Music at Dakota Wesleyan University.

Stops on the tour include McCook Central School in Salem and Hanson School in Alexandria on Thursday, Nov. 3. They will also play for Wessington Springs School and T.F. Riggs High School in Pierre on Friday, Nov. 4.

In addition to playing, the Wesleyan band members will work with the school bands, helping students to refine their playing skills, offering constructive critiques of each band's performances.

The Wesleyan Band is directed by Bethany Amundson, director of bands and director of instrumental studies at DWU. Amundson is also past president of the South Dakota Music Education Association.

The Dakota Wesleyan Choir and the Wesleyan Bells will embark on their Christmas mini-tour December 10-11. Communities where they will perform include Pierre and Huron.
