The Hope College Wind Ensemble will perform a concert on Friday, Feb. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall of the Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.
The public is invited. Admission is free.
The Wind Ensemble’s hope is to showcase the flexibility of the Concert Hall by playing a variety of works, including director Gabe Southard’s new arrangement of Giovanni Gabrieli’s “Pian e Forte” for four antiphonal choirs of instruments. The Wind Ensemble will also perform “Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor,” by Johann Sebastian Bach; “Festive Overture,” by Dmitri Shostakovich; and “Toccata Marziale,” by Vaughan Williams.
Sarah Southard, Hope College oboe instructor, will also be featured with the ensemble, performing “Concertino for Solo Oboe and Winds,” by Carl Maria von Weber.
The Hope College Wind Ensemble is the premier wind group on the Hope campus, and performs a wide variety of music, from standard works, to cutting-edge, 20th-century works, to chamber pieces. The Wind Ensemble performs several concerts each semester both on-campus and off-campus, including a Halloween concert and during Musical Showcase. The Wind Ensemble is directed by Southard, associate professor of music.
The Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts is located at 221 Columbia Ave., between Ninth and 10th streets.
