The SUU Woodwind and Brass Ensembles perform Monday, November 13, 2017, followed by the SUU Strings and Piano Ensembles on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Both performances will be in the SUU Music Building’s Thorley Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

Monday, November 13, 2017, the Woodwind Ensemble will perform a variety of classical Broadway numbers such as The Sound of Music, and Danza Mexicana, No.2. This showcases the outstanding ability, variation, and talent of SUU musicians. Performers include Mallory Barlow, Madison Coburn, Demi Delaney, Shianne Ogzewalla, Camrie Greenhalgh, Angela Hanks, Becca Kelly, Samantha Rew, McKenna Terry, and Dr. Thomas Herb.

The night will continue with the SUU Brass Ensemble which will perform an eclectic program of early renaissance music, such as classics by Giovanni Gabrieli and modern works by Eric Ewazen. The group is made up of some of SUU’s finest brass musicians, Robby Debry, Laura Bird, Aria Williams, Brayden England, and Brennan Hansen.

Camrie Greenhalgh, freshman clarinet player and music education major said, “It’s not just another concert full of classical works that only music nerds know about. It’s a performance full of different ensembles and a variety of instruments. It will be a fun performance full of popular movie, theatre, and holiday songs.” 

Ensemble performances continue on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, as the Strings and Piano Ensemble musicians: Haim Saban, Shuki Levy, Kennedi Ludvigson, Clara Whittaker, Heather Celis, James Jolley, Anthony Malachowski, Michael Blake, and Kennedy Worthington perform a mixture of lively and even quirky numbers such as Jubilation! Get-Up-and-Go, and Inspector Gadget.

Kennedy Worthington, a freshman music education major performing in the ensemble for the first time, said, “This production has taught me about collaboration and that I have to rely on other people, I don’t have to handle everything on my own.”

Come enjoy timeless classics, fun-loving favorites, and a memorable night with SUU Music Ensembles. For more information on Southern Utah University’s Department of Music, please visit www.suu.edu/pva/music.
