The Wind Orchestra’s Setting The Standard concert at ONU is a marvelous example of student involvement in the university. From the musicians, attendees and even the Freed Center staff, students worked every aspect of this production. Within the orchestra itself, students from all over the university, regardless of major are able to participate as a musician in the orchestra.
