Come have ‘Conversations’ with the UNL Wind Ensemble
calendar icon27 Nov 2019
Activity in the Ensemble Performance Lab has been buzzing since early October and the team is eager to collaborate with an audience once again. Join the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Wind Ensemble on December 11 at 7:30 p.m. in Kimball Recital Hall as they engage four venerable and inventive characters in an ongoing game of strategy and finesse in “Conversations”. Percy Grainger, Gustav Holst, J.S. Bach and Paul Hindemith are at the table and we’ve saved a seat for you. On the board are Suite in E-flat, Mock Morris, Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, Fugue a la Gigue, Colonial Song, and Symphony in B-flat. Stay alert – Holst may look mild mannered, but he’ll eat your lunch, and Hindemith cheats. Don’t miss the fun!
The UNL Wind Ensemble is the university’s premier concert band. Its select mission is to provide instrumentalists of advanced technical proficiency a pre-professional ensemble experience. With an emphasis on contemporary American compositions, the Wind Ensemble’s repertoire reflects the most recent technical and textural innovations, as well as the rich tradition of wind and percussion music extending back to the Renaissance.
Tickets: Adults $5; Students/Seniors $3. This performance will also be live webcast. Visit music.unl.edu the night of the event for the link.
