The Wind Ensemble opens its 2019-2020 concert season with a program designed for exploration. Stephen Montague’s Intrada 1631, after Juan Pérez Bocanegra defines the space, both temporally and acoustically, even as it opens a channel between 17th century Peru and 21st century Puerto Rico. Donald Grantham uses the space to develop ideas from three German composers, transporting them from the early Baroque era to the present day in Circa 1600. In a similar expedition, Kathryn Salfelder invokes geometry and the English Renaissance in Crossing Parallels. Underlying and connecting these forays through time and space is a fundamental sense of motion epitomized in Bob Margolis’ homage to Praetorius’ compendium of French dances, Terpsichore. This colorful celebration of dance flows finally back into the original channel leading to Sierra’s infectious “Tumbao” from Sinfonia No. 3 – La Salsa.

The Wind Ensemble is the university’s premier concert band. Its select mission is to provide instrumentalists of advanced technical proficiency a pre-professional ensemble experience. With an emphasis on contemporary American compositions, the Wind Ensemble’s repertoire reflects the most recent technical and textural innovations, as well as the rich tradition of wind and percussion music extending back to the Renaissance. The objectives of the Wind Ensemble are to rehearse and perform repertoire of the highest caliber, encompassing the broadest possible spectrum of styles; to develop a high degree of refinement and independence in students’ ability to communicate musically in both chamber and larger ensemble settings; and to provide, through the study of the masterworks of the wind band repertoire, an anthology of styles, performance practices and techniques that will serve as the foundation for students’ ability to realize their professional musical aspirations.

Tickets: Adults $5; Students/Seniors $3.
