WIND ENSEMBLE CONCERT MOVED TO MAY 2
The Spring 2012 SLU Wind Ensemble under the direction of Tim Savage has been on an expedition to find favorites. Our exchanges and excursions have resulted in exposure to a number of wonderful pieces that may make it all the way to our Wednesday, May 2nd concert in P-K Hall, at 8 pm. The list of selections they have spent time with thus far include: In This Quiet Place by Robert Sheldon Duke Ellington! a great arrangement by Cal Custer of some of Duke's greatest melodies Fate of the Gods by Steven Reineke Shenandoah arranged by Frank Ticheli Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen John Williams in Concert Choral Prelude by J. S. Bach The Planets by Gustov Holst On A Hymnsong of Philip Bliss by David Holsinger March from The Love of Three Oranges Op. 33 by Prokofieff Lord of the Rings by Howard Shore Kingdom Hearts from Video Games Live Plans are also underway for collaborations with Barry Torres' University Chorus and Michael Farley's femme fatale ensemble. Looks like this expedition is well-underway and filled to overflowing with musical riches.
