Eastview Musicians Play Piece By Former Exchange Student Eastview High School's Wind Ensemble performs Friday at the Minneapolis Convention Center, and a piece they're performing is an original composition by Patrick Hahn from Austria. Hahn, 18, is a former Eastview foreign exchange student. "[The piece] is kind of a reflection. It's supposed to be played in a couple churches in Austria and Hungary as well, so it's kind of kept in a more reflective style," Hahn said.
