Wind-up for Orchestra

The magnificence of wind orchestra music by modern masters fills Southminster Church as the U of L Wind Orchestra presents its semester wind-up concert, Apr. 8 at 8 p.m. The program highlights the brilliant compositions of 20th century wind orchestra composers and features guest vocalist, Dr. Sandra Stringer.

"All the composers showcased on the program are considered modern masters in our field, starting in the early and middle 20th century with Percy Grainger, and then Jack Stamp and Frank Ticheli, who write primarily for band, to David Maslanka and Donald Grantham, who have a widely varied portfolio including many great band works," says Dr. Thomas Staples,
U of L Wind Orchestra director.

Guest soloist, Dr. Sandra Stringer, performs, Four Maryland Songs, for soprano and band, written by American composer Jack Stamp.

"She is also our featured soloist on a new work for band by Frank Ticheli entitled, Angels in the Architecture," says Staples.

Tickets are available at the University Box Office, or by calling 403-329-2616 and at the door on the night of the concert.
