HAMMOND, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Southeastern Louisiana University Wind Symphony will present a concert heralding music surrounding the presidency in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Former Gov. Kathleen Blanco will serve as master of ceremonies for Thursday's performance, entitled "POTUS: Music of the Presidency."

The program will include several pieces most people are familiar with, including "Fanfare and Flourishes," "Hail to the Chief" and John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" and "Presidential Polonaise."

The 7:30 p.m. event will be held at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts as part of the university's fall Fanfare celebration of the arts, humanities and social sciences. General admission tickets are $10; Southeastern students are admitted free with their student ID card.
