SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble will perform their final concert of the year, “Lincoln Portrait,” on Sunday at 7 p.m. in the Sheridan High School auditorium.

The ensembles are directed by Dr. Michael P. Flynn. At 6 p.m. Flynn will discuss the works to be performed.

The jazz ensemble will begin the concert with five selections.

The wind ensemble will then perform two works.

Their final work, “Lincoln Portrait,” by Aaron Copland is written for wind ensemble and a narrator. The music is meant to reflect the noble simplicity of Lincoln while the narration incorporates quotes into the texture of the music.

Brett Burtis, director of veterans services at Sheridan College, will be the narrator.

Admission to the performance is free and the public is invited to attend.
