The Program

  • Hanson—Fanfare for Mountain and Plain: Local composer Dave Hanson's energetic fanfare offers a "wide open spaces" tone
  • Lovrien—Minor Alterations: Christmas Through the Looking Glass: Carried along in a flurry of twinkling flutes and dark woodwinds, this whimsical composition puts a minor-key spin on such classics as "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and "Silver Bells."
  • Susato—selected movements from The Danserye: The 16th-century composer's work is notable for its vibrant sounds of chamber music which incorporates combinations of woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
  • Bobrowitz/Soper—A Chanukah Celebration: The holiday is welcomed with a festive medley of five traditional songs: "Chanukah," "The Dreydle Song," "O Chanukah," "Rock Of Ages," and "Who Can Retell."
  • Holst—Second Suite in F: Originally composed for a military band, this piece of four short movements features an arrangement of touching folksongs.
  • Maslanka—Symphony No. 4: The full forces of the symphonic wind ensemble weaves together classic hymns in this homage to transformation and rebirth.

Colorado Wind Ensemble

"A wind ensemble is much like a traditional concert band," explains the Colorado Wind Ensemble on their website, "but each musician plays more as a soloist within a large group rather than as one member of a large section playing the same part." That approach folds neatly into the group's mission: to create opportunities for performers to share their talents, while also presenting programs that entertain audiences. To that end, their concerts encompass a wide range of musical styles and eras, from Renaissance and Baroque club hits to military marches and contemporary arrangements. It's proven a winning combination—the ensemble has engaged listeners for more than 30 seasons.
