SU Wind Ensemble Continues Music Festival December 6
class=""MsoNormal"">SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s “Ornaments in Harmony” fall music festival continues with the SU Wind Ensemble 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 6, in Holloway Hall Auditorium.
class=""MsoNormal"">The program includes a blend of holiday classics, such as “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” with non-traditional pieces such as selections from Frank Tichelli’s Cajun Folk Songs, conducted by Katherine Kilmon.
class=""MsoNormal"">"December concerts provide opportunities to perform many well known and even newer compositions that are associated with this holiday season," said conductor Lee Knier. "We've included, however, a few selections that are simply interesting to perform without regard to any season or event. Cajun Folk Songs is a hauntingly beautiful piece in two movements that starts simply, but grows on the listener as it becomes more complex and intense."
class=""MsoNormal"">Other pieces include Mozart’s Concerto for Clarinet, K. 622, 1st Movement; Eric Whitacre’s October; J.S. Bach’s “Sheep May Safely Graze” from Cantata No. 208; Johnny Marks’ “Most Wonderful Time of the Year;” “O come, O come Emmanuel”; Strauss’ “Radetzky March” and Floyd Werle’s “A Celebration of Christmas” and Claude T. Smith’s “Symphonic Prelude” from Adeste Fidelis. Sponsored by the Department of Music, the concert is free and the public is invited.
