Wind Symphony to Present Its First
Concert of the Season on October 3

Posted September 18, 2000

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Wind Symphony will perform its first concert of the year on Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 6:30 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

The public is invited. Admission is free. The evening will feature the music of Williams, Bernstein, Nelson and Gillingham. David Gillingham composed the world premiere piece performed at the college's DeVos Musical Showcase this past spring.

Perhaps most notable will be a performance of Karel Husa's "Concertino for Piano and Wind Ensemble," featuring Hope College's own Jun Okada as piano soloist. Okada has performed throughout the United States, Japan and Canada, and has recorded for the Canadian Broadcasting Company. She is renowned for her command of contemporary repertoire, especially as an accompanist.

The evening of music will also serve as a prelude for the college's Critical Issues Symposium. Titled "Gold Rush & Ghost Towns: Living with the Internet," the symposium begins in the chapel on Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. and continues at a variety of campus locations throughout the day on Wednesday, Oct. 4.

Dimnent Memorial Chapel is located on College Avenue at 12th Street. Additional information may be obtained by calling the college's department of music at (616) 395-7650.
