SUU Wind SymphonyLet the autumn winds whisk you to the SUU Wind Symphony Concert at the Heritage Center this Friday, October 28, at 7:30 pm. Come and enjoy an evening of music, featuring the exciting, upbeat compositions of John Williams’ The Cowboys and Ron Nelson’s Rocky Point Holiday. It will also include beautiful, sonorous music, such as O Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen, translated by H. Robert Reynolds, and Rhosymedre by Vaughan Williams.

The SUU Wind Symphony is an auditioned group consisting of Music Majors and many non-music majors. It is a 60-member ensemble consisting of some of the finest instrumental musicians on SUU’s campus.

The name of the group, The Wind Symphony, refers to the method through which much of this music is created. A wind instrument produces sound by the vibration of air, typically from a player blowing into the instrument. The Wind Symphony takes their musical product beyond the traditional stylings of a concert band to create sounds and textures much like a symphony orchestra, but with wind instruments rather than string instruments.

The SUU Wind Symphony Concert will be an evening of both lively and ethereal music that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Don’t miss your chance to experience the musical stylings of this talented group of students! Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for emeriti and alumni with card, $5 for students/children. The concert is free for SUU faculty, staff, and students with ID.
