Wind Symphony: State of Impressionism

with guests Michelle Stanley, Flute; and John McGuire, Horn

 The 2017-2018 Wind Symphony season highlights CSU’s commitment to collaboration, community, innovation, and inspiration. All of these ideals clearly connect to music and the arts, and the ensemble, conducted by Rebecca Phillips, continues its season by highlighting works of Impressionism. Each piece was originally written for winds during a historical period that highlighted the collaboration of visual art, literature, and music. The French movement, known as Impressionism (art) and Symbolism (literature) created timbres from which composers created some of our most colorful music in history. Join us and “Find Your State!”
