CCM’s Wind Orchestra presents a historical survey of significant contemporary American composers at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 12, in UC’s Corbett Auditorium.

The eclectic program will include music by American composers with a variety of backgrounds:

  • Samuel Barber (1910-1981), Pulitzer Prize winner known for, among other works, his wildly popular Adagio for Strings.
  • German-born Ingolf Dahl (1912-1970), who settled in Los Angeles and was a conductor, critic and pianist, playing for Hollywood films and working with artists such as Victor Borge and Benny Goodman.
  • Warren Benson (1924-2005), known for his dynamic works for percussion and winds, who was a professional musician by age 14 and who went on to play timpani in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
  • Michael Daugherty (b.1954), Professor of Composition at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance whose often-performed works are influenced by popular culture, Romanticism and Postmodernism.

CCM Director of Wind Studies Glenn D. Price conducts this performance, which closes out the Wind Orchestra’s 2012-13 concert series.
