Posted on 10/19/2018 1:58:07 PM

Join the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Department of Music as they continue their Sound Choices series with a performance from the Keystone Chamber Winds on Thursday, October 25, at 8:00 p.m. in Gorell Recital Hall, located on the second floor of Sutton Hall.

Keystone Chamber WindsThis Keystone Chamber Winds is composed of a mix of faculty from IUP’s Department of Music, current students, and alumni. Jason Worzbyt, the conductor of the Keystone Chamber Winds, is a professor of Bassoon and the associate director of Bands at IUP. Giving some background on what makes this performance group unique, Worzbyt shared, “This ensemble was founded in 2006 by our Director of Band Emeritus, Jack Stamp. The purpose was to perform literature for smaller ensembles using a mix of faculty and students. Not only do the faculty enjoy performing this music together, it is also a powerful teaching tool for our current students to sit by their teachers.”

The evening will begin with two pieces that feature the brass ensemble: “Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare” by Richard Strauss, and “O Magnum, Mysterium” by Morten Lauridsen. The rest of the program will include a mixture of both woodwind and brass with such works as “Serendade No. 1” by Vincent Persichetti, “Double Wind Quintet” by Alfred Reed, and “Serenade No. 10 ‘Gran Partita’ in Bb” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
