Reynish will conduct Guy Woolfenden’s “Gallimaufry.” The concert will also feature saxophone soloist Ronald Caravan, adjunct instructor in the Rose, Jules R. and Stanford S. School of Music. Caravan will perform Karel Husa’s “Concerto for Alto Saxophone” under the direction of Bradley P. Ethington, assistant director of SU Bands in the Setnor School of Music.
John Laverty, director of SU Bands, will conduct “Hammersmith” by Gustav Holst, “Medium Funk Prelude” by Paul Richards, and “Ballet Suite” from the opera “Coppelia” by Leo Delibes.
The Wind Ensemble is the University’s premiere concert band and is comprised of musicians from within the Setnor School of Music. The Wind Ensemble performs literature ranging from the largest symphonic works requiring all of its performers, to “one-on-a-part” chamber works calling for eight to twenty-four performers. Two concerts are presented each semester on campus with guest soloists and conductors adding to the varied musical experiences.
