Wind Ensemble performs October 18


The Adams State University Music Department presents their Fall Wind Ensemble Concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18 in Leon Memorial Hall.

The concert will include: Fortress by Frank Ticheli; Prelude, Siciliano and Rondo by Malcolm Arnold; Ye Banks & Braes o'Bonnie Doon by Percy Grainger; Symphony #1 (in Memoriam, Dresden); October by Eric Whitacre; and Valdres March by Johannes Hanssen.

Don Miller, director of the ensemble said: "The concert features a wide variety of works for the wind band. The music will reach the true extremes of the listening experience. The Symphony expresses horror, the Whitacre composition (October) is unashamedly beautiful and the final march is simply delightful."
