Wind Ensemble to give final concert of the academic year

Dr. Paula Holcomb

The SUNY Fredonia Wind Ensemble will give its final performance of the academic year on Wednesday, April 30 at 8 p.m. in King Concert Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature a diverse program of works under the direction of Dr. Paula Holcomb, including John Adams', "Short Ride on a Fast Machine;" "Good Soldier Schweik," by Robert Kurka; "Integrales" by EdgardVarese, and "Sinfonia No. 3, Tumbao" by Roberto Sierra.

"These amazing musicians will take you from minimalism to Puerto Rico," commented Dr. Holcomb, "so come prepared for a fantastic ride!"

One of the major ensembles of the School of Music, the Wind Ensemble recently completed a four-day tour of New York with visits to eight high schools throughout the state. The 44-member group performed with and for high school wind, brass and percussion students, representing a wonderful learning opportunity for high school and college students alike.
