Its program includes "Fanfare for Fenway" by John Williams; Overture to Candide by Leonard Bernstein; a tribute to Vietnam veterans, "Heroes, Lost and Fallen," by David Gillingham; "Teddy Trombone" by Henry Fillmore, featuring the University Band's trombone section; "In Evening's Stillness" by Joseph Schwantner; and the classic work for winds, "Lincolnshire Posy," by Percy Grainger.
The ensemble invites all audience members to bring one or more non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry. Any one presenting a food item to the box office will receive a free ticket to the University Band's performance.
ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE
The University Band is a select ensemble of woodwind, brass and percussion musicians, chosen through an audition process. Wind Ensemble musicians are also University Band members and are invited to perform with this distinctive ensemble through this same audition process. Repertoire is selected from a wide variety of high-quality concert literature for both symphonic band and wind ensemble. Auditions are open to all DePauw University musicians.
The University Band and Wind Ensemble present five to six joint performances each year. In addition, the ensembles have been recognized internationally for their renowned CD Recording Project, an artistic endeavor dedicated to recording quality wind literature and highlighting the talents of DePauw University musicians. This nine-disc series can be found on the Naxos Online Music Library, Amazon.com, MarkCustom.com, CDUniverse.com, mp3.Rhapsody.com and ArkivMusic.com. The University Band has also been featured on national broadcasts of Wind & Rhythm, a weekly one-hour internet radio program devoted to wind band music hosted by Doug Brown.
Repertoire and additional concert information will be available in early September. Visit http://www.depauw.edu/music/ensembles/band for more information.
