This Thursday the Wind Symphony and the Symphonic Band of the University of Boulder’s College of Music will be hosting a free concert at Macky Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
The Symphonic Band, led by Associate Director of Bands Dr. Matthew Dockendorf, will perform four songs. The repertoire will consist of Edward Gregson’s exuberant rondo “Festivo;” Roshanne Etezady’s choral-inspired “Against the Rain;” Martin Ellerby’s “Paris Sketches,” with its overarching theme of bells, and John Zdechlik’s dynamic “Celebrations,” which commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Medalist Concert Band of Bloomington, Minnesota.
The Wind Symphony will be conducted by Dr. Donald J. McKinney, director of bands. Wind Symphony will perform Roberto Sierra’s lively “Fandangos;” Collin Kemeny’s “Introduction” and “Dance Macabre,” which move from grandiose splendor to warped melodies, and Joel Puckett’s profound composition “That Secret From The River.”
