The Hope College Wind Ensemble and the Faculty and Student Collaborative Ensemble (FASCE) will perform a joint concert on Friday, April 21, 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 concert program will include Wind Ensemble Director Gabe Southard’s transcription of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Symphony No. 2 ‘Antar’;” the Midwest premiere of “Krummholz Variations,” by Oliver Caplan; and David Maslanka’s “Symphony No. 4.”
The ensembles will feature students working side-by-side with Hope faculty, and several members of the Holland community will also be featured.
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 FASCE provides Hope students the opportunity to perform professional repertoire while working side-by-side with their studio teachers. It also enables faculty to teach students in a working environment while providing audiences with expert-level performances.
The Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts is located at 221 Columbia Ave., between Ninth and 10th streets.
