Music is perhaps the most powerful method by which a moment in time can be expressed. Great composers have used their gifts to frame a person, place or event in a way that can forever convey the emotions of those who experienced them. This will be a night to remember as the Cal Poly wind bands set the stage for an exciting concert featuring some of the most powerful musical moments ever written.

Cal Poly Wind Bands' Spring Concert: Winds of Change - Music of the 21st Century

Wind Orchestra and Wind Ensemble

Saturday, June 3, 2017
8 p.m. Harman Hall
, Performing Arts Center

The wind band is somewhat unusual in that its performers and directors tend to adore and gravitate toward "new" music. From early ensembles, such as the Sousa Band or the Goldman Band, through the era of the Eastman Wind Ensemble and the Tokyo Kosai Wind Orchestra, wind bands have consistently championed contemporary music. That wonderful tradition continues with a program that features works written in the 21st century. Exciting, bold, romantic, traditional, heart-warming, pleasant and intense are just some of the words that could be used to describe this incredible concert.
