Tonight the Frost Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Gary Green and Shawn Vondran, and the Frost Symphonic Winds, under the direction of Phil Clements and Jamie Nyx, will perform a concert in Gusman Hall at the Frost School of Music. The concert is scheduled to start at 8 pm EST.
Works from the Symphonic Winds (the ensemble I’m in):
- Frank Ticheli‘s Blue Shades
- Eric Whitacre‘s October
- Jim Bonney‘s Chaos Theory (Concerto for Electric Guitar and Wind Orchestra) featuring guest artist Bonney himself, as the composer and guitar soloist
If you can’t make the concert (or aren’t in the same state/country/continent), you can listen to a live stream from the UMiami website. The link is here, and the stream will begin a half hour before the concert, at 7:30 pm EST.
I have yet to find out which ensemble will perform first, so you’ll have to listen and see for yourself! Enjoy!
