It is one thing to travel with a Gustavus music ensemble around Minnesota, but it is a completely different experience to travel with a Gustavus music ensemble internationally. We are proud to say our students have the opportunity to travel and perform abroad. Fresh off of their 16-day, five-country European concert tour with the Gustavus Wind Orchestra, conductor Doug Nimmo, tour manager Al Behrends ’77, and emeritus professor David Fienen will be the February Gustie Breakfast speakers. Doing a tag-team recap of the amazing tour, you will hear from all three presenters about the sights, sounds, and experiences that they along with the students had across Eastern Europe.
