Wind Ensemble Concert

Just a quick reminder from an earlier post that the Frost Wind Ensemble has a concert tonight at 8 pm in Gusman Concert Hall. Admission is free if you’re in the Miami area, and if you’re not, you can listen to the concert live via audio stream here (hopefully the equipment will be working this time-sorry to those of you who tried to listen in to the Symphonic Winds concert last week). The program will be conducted almost entirely by Thomas Sleeper (orchestra conductor, in lieu of Director of Bands Gary Green, who is on sabbatical) and will include:

Xi Wang – Music for Piano, Percussion, and Wind Ensemble
Simone Gomez, Cliff Sutton-Percussion; Marina Radiushina-Piano

Sweelinck-Variations on “Mein junges Leben hat ein End” arr. Rciker
Lauren Denney Wright-Conductor

Stinson-Cog (World Premiere)

Sleeper-Concerto for Trumpet
Craig Morris-Trumpet

While the Xi Wang is the only piece I will be performing on, this entire concert is going to be an incredible experience, so I would urge anyone who can to listen in and enjoy a night of fantastic music! As an added bonus, three of the four composers on this program (Xi Wang, Scott Stinson, Thom Sleeper) will be in attendance at the concert! Hope to see you there!
