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.
Tickets ($12 and $14 general, $9 and $12 students)
