The 50-member Wind Ensemble will be conducted by Dr. Paula Holcomb in John Leszczynski’s “Scherzo à la Britten” and the first and last movements of Joseph Turrin’s “Hemispheres.” The Saxophone Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Wildy Zumwalt, will perform Steve Reich’s “New York Counterpoint,” arranged by Daniel Espinoza and featuring 12 Fredonia saxophonists.
