HSU Wind Ensemble

Please join the HSU Department of Music and conductor Paul Cummings for an evening of iconic music for band performed by the HSU Wind Ensemble on Friday, April 20 at 8:00 p.m. in Fulkerson Recital Hall. One highlight of the evening will be the Tuba Concerto by Ralph Vaughan-Williams, featuring Fred Tempas as soloist. This work is rarely performed with wind bands because it was composed originally for orchestra. However, this excellent arrangement for band by Denis Wick creates a unique opportunity for soloist, ensemble, and audience to experience this work in a live concert setting. Also highlighted on the program are two works by Leonard Bernstein in recognition of the centennial of his birth, Danzon from Fancy Free and Three Dance Preludes from On the Town, as well as works by diverse composers like Percy Grainger, Kurt Weill, and Arturo Marquez. This concert will be the culmination of eight performances in six days as the HSU Wind Ensemble completes a northern California concert tour to the communities of Ukiah, Lakeport, Kelseyville, Santa Rosa, and Petaluma. $10 General, $5 Senior/Child, FREE for HSU students with ID.
