Symphonic Band Concert
Thursday, December 7, 7:30 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall, UCA
Join us as the Symphonic Band tackles Steven Bryant’s electrifying Ecstatic Waters, the 2010 winner of the National Band Association William D. Revelli Award. Inspired by the poetry of W.B. Yeats, this work fuses the wind band with electronic elements to create a new, hybrid sound-world that ranges from the joyful bell sounds of the first movement to its explosive conclusion.
Wind Symphony Concert
Find Your State: State of Innovation
Friday, December 8, 7:30 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall, UCA
The 2017-18 CSU Wind Symphony season highlights Colorado State University’s commitment to collaboration, community, innovation, and inspiration. All of these ideals can clearly be connected by music, and the Wind Symphony continues their season by highlighting works of innovation. Each selection on this concert changed the way both music and theatre were conceived, interpreted, and enjoyed by audiences around the world. We hope that you will join us to “Find Your State” at the UCA!
