The Fredonia Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Paula Holcomb, will host the New Horizons Band of Western New York, conducted by Dr. Katherine Levy, along with the All College Band, College Symphony, Concert Band, and Wind Symphony brass as the groups conclude the academic year of performing, on Friday, April 15 at 8 p.m. in King Concert Hall.

Composer Andrew Rindfleisch will be on campus to introduce his, "Light Fantastic - The Hustle," which is based on the ‘70s disco dance. The Wind Ensemble will also perform the epic, “Gran Duo,” by Magnus Lindberg; the satirical “Bolt,” by Dimitri Shostakovich, and, “Passacaglia on B - A - C – H," by Ron Nelson. The New Horizons Band will open the second portion of the concert with the exciting work, "Nordic Sketches," by Pierre La Plante, conducted by Dr. Levy.

The night of passionate music concludes as all of the ensembles are featured together in the spectacular symphonic poem, Ottorino Respighi’s "Pines of Rome.”

The concert is free and the public is invited to attend.

The Fredonia Wind Ensemble consists of the most outstanding wind and percussion players at Fredonia. Dedicated to presenting the finest repertoire from all musical periods to its audiences, it draws from contemporary and historical wind works, orchestral transcriptions, as well as standard band literature.

The New Horizons Band of Western New York provides opportunities for adults to learn to play a musical instrument as well as for former players wishing to reacquaint themselves with their instruments.
