The Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Carolyn Barber, the Ron and Carol Cope Professor of Music and Director of Bands, is the university’s premier concert band. Its select mission is to provide instrumentalists of advanced technical proficiency a pre-professional ensemble experience.
Their inaugural concert for the 2021-2022 season will feature Lewis Buckley’s “Bright Colored Dances,” Aldo Raphael Forte’s “Impressionist Prints” and Jere Hutcheson’s “Caricatures.”
“The Ensemble Performance Lab has been experimenting with intention and inclusion this semester. How vividly are we able to portray each of the colors, each of the prints, each of the caricatures? More importantly, will the audience be able to tell which is which?” Barber said. “On Oct. 8 we’ll be experimenting and playing games designed to connect the audience’s experience to the ensemble’s efforts throughout the performance. If you’re up for some art-based musical fun, this event is for you."
