Concert: IUP Spring 2021 Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra


Fisher Auditorium The Lively Arts

This event has been rescheduled from April 25 to May 2, starting at 1:00 p.m. and will now take place in Fisher Auditorium instead of the Oak Grove.

Beginning at 1:00 p.m. the Wind Ensemble, directed by Tim Paul, director of Bands, will perform an evening of Chamber Winds and Flex-Band music for this concert. Our music will have something for everyone and be an aural representation of our human condition. Works will include:

I. Canon Fanfare Flexible Instrumentation by Steve Danyew
II. Remember Me by David Maslanka Cello and Wind Ensemble; Linda Jennings, guest soloist
III. Biomimicry for wind octet by Roger Zare
      - La Sagrada Familia
      - Cetacean Energy
      - Bullet Train
IV. Point Break (Chamber Winds) by Paul Dooley 

Then at 3:00 p.m. the IUP Symphony Orchestra will take you on a symphonic voyage with music from around the world. We’ll parade and dance through the streets of Mexico, marvel at the grandeur of Finland, and sail the high seas of the Caribbean. The orchestra, conducted by Alexandra Dee, will be joined by IUP horn professor Heidi Lucas to perform Hovhaness’s Artik concerto for horn, an ode to the composer’s ancestral homeland of Armenia.

A live audience of IUP card holders only will be permitted. The event will also be live-streamed on the IUP Department of Music’s YouTube Channel.
