Wind Ensemble to Present Spring Concert

Alumni Hero
 The Lee University Wind Ensemble will present its final concert of the spring season on Sunday, April 15, at 4 p.m. in Conn Center.

The concert will feature a varied and entertaining program, including Leonard Bernstein’s Overture to Candide; Anthony Iannaccone’s After a Gentle Rain; Dimitri Schostakovich’s Dance I; and Danzas Cubanas by Robert Sheldon.

Also featured will be a set of “quirky” compositions from Percy Grainger, titled Three Tragic Ballads. The three works, though based on “tragic tales,” are colorful and unorthodox in their presentation.

The afternoon’s line-up will also include marches by Karl King, Henry Fillmore, and John Phillip Sousa.

Closing the program will be two tribute works, Adagio by David Holsinger and They Hung Their Harps in the Willow by W. Francis McBeth.

The wind ensemble will perform under the baton of conductor Dr. David Holsinger, professor of music, and associate conductor Winona Gray Holsinger, director of instrumental projects.

The concert is open to the public and free of charge. For more information, contact the School of Music at 423-614-8240.
