The University Wind Symphony and Orchestra will perform a concert on Saturday, October 4, at 7:30 p.m., in Buckley Center Auditorium. The concert is free and open to faculty, staff, students, and the public.
The Wind Symphony program looks at the use of humor in music, including Percy Grainger’s whimsical Country Gardens, Paul Hart’s Cartoon, and Jonathan Newman’s “bubblegum pop” piece Single, featuring senior vocalist Amelia Segler. Rounding out the program is John Mackey’s Aurora Awakes, one of the most significant band works thus far in the 21st century.
The University Orchestra will feature Margaret Brouwer’s stirring and elegiac tone poem, Remembrances, as well as student concerto competition winner David Yee playing Alexander Glazunov’s Concerto in E flat major for alto saxophone.
