The Syracuse University Wind Ensemble and Symphony Band will present a concert at 8 p.m. Oct. 8 in the Rose and Jules R. Setnor Auditorium in SU’s Crouse College. The concert is free and open to the public.
Under the direction of John Laverty, director of SU Bands, and Bradley Ethington, assistant director of SU Bands, the ensembles will perform works by Holst, Grantham, Francaix, Wagner, Grainger and Shostakovich.
The Wind Ensemble is SU’s premiere concert band and is open to student musicians campus-wide. The ensemble performs literature ranging from large symphonic works that require all of its performers to “one-on-a-part” chamber works that require eight to 24 performers. Two concerts are presented each semester on campus, with guest soloists and conductors adding to the varied musical experiences.
The Symphony Band is open to both music majors and non-majors. The ensemble performs some of the most outstanding traditional and contemporary wind band repertoire.
