UMass Amherst’s Department of Music & Dance incubates budding musicians in performance-based, student-built music ensembles that perform a bouquet of styles for awaiting audiences. Upcoming performances include works from the University Orchestra, in which conductor Vince Lee leads the 80-member platoon through spellbinding works such as Shostakovich’s Festival Overture and Ginastera’s Estancia Ballet Suite. With Jazz Ensemble I, director Jeffrey Holmes leads a flurry of bassoons, flutes, and bass clarinets as the ensemble showcases exotic time signatures (November 21). With a fistful of mallets and fully loaded xylophones, director Thomas Hannum and the UMass Marimba Bands and Ensembles meld Latin vibes, jazzy bounce, and lilting arpeggios (November 22), keeping audiences on the edge of their seats without the need to use thumbtacks.
