  • Brock University Wind Ensemble presents “That’s Entertainment”

    music_0809_0598_3On Tuesday, April 6, 2010, the Department of Music’s University Wind Ensemble will explore the full breadth of wind ensemble repertoire as they present a concert of musical fireworks, from Rimsky-Korsakov to John Williams, held at the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre at 7:30 p.m.

    Under the direction of conductor Zoltan Kalman, the University Wind Ensemble is comprised of 55 musicians drawn from Brock students, high school students, and members of Niagara’s musical community, including the Niagara Symphony and Symphony Hamilton. Seasoned professional players will perform together with university students, as well as high school students from Centennial, Welland; Holy Cross and Eden, St. Catharines; Lakeshore Catholic, Wainfleet; A. N. Myer, Niagara Falls; Grimsby High, Grimsby; Beamsville District Secondary School, Beamsville; Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School, St. Catharines, and E. L. Crossley, Fonthill.

    The evening program, entitled That’s Entertainment, features masterworks of the past and present including Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov: Sheherazade; Robert Russell Bennett: Symphonic Songs; Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg: Les Miserables (featuring Vanessa Vella, soprano); George Gershwin: I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’ (featuring April Curran, soprano); and John Williams: Star Wars.

    “Following on the success of the past three years, this selection of music is designed to highlight both the virtuosity and nuance of the evening,” says conductor Zoltan Kalman, a part-time faculty member in the Department of Music and principal clarinetist of the Niagara Symphony.

    Such performances from the Department of Music are a key part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts’s mandate in building connections between the community and the breadth of talent and creativity at Brock University.

    Join us on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. in the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre, Brock University, and discover classical and modern wind ensemble repertoire!
