November Winds

November 5, 2017

Tonight’s concert is inspired by wind! In this program, you’ll hear about the varying textures and colors of the wind in Yagüe’s stunning Historietas del viento; you’ll hear music for choir and piano with wind instruments in the gossamer vignettes of Shield’s The Evening Star and in Parker’s brilliant and cheeky Elinor Wylie: Incantations; you’ll hear music written for winds in the Shuller suite, the Ligeti bagatelles and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue; and finally, you’ll be treated to some choral wind sounds in my Arrow and the Song. We welcome our friends, the Bel Canto Wind Quintet, to perform both as an ensemble and with the choir, and extend our heartfelt gratitude to the anonymous patron who has sponsored the quintet for this program.
