Join the musicians of Symphonic Band and wind faculty soloists from the School of Music for this first public performance of the ensemble in nearly 19 months. The program celebrates and honors all that we have experienced since we were last gathered together — hope, loss, resilience, community, and joy. Composers include Vincent Persichetti, Julie Giroux, Steven Danyew, William Henry Monk, and Charles Rochester Young. Scott A. Jones, conductor.
The Wind Symphony presents a program of music inspired by people and places from around the world. The program opens with Spanish composer Oscar Navarro’s exciting Downey Overture. British composer Martin Ellerby shares his musical homage to Paris in his Paris Sketches, and Valerie Coleman was inspired by the Roma people in her work of the same name, conducted by DMA student Dustin Ferguson. The program concludes with Aaron Copland’s impressions of Mexico presented in his Three Latin American Sketches, performed in a new transcription by Russel C. Mikkelson, conductor of the ensemble.
