The CCM Wind Orchestra will present a concert celebrating the 60th anniversary of Frederick Fennel’s founding of the modern wind ensemble at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, in UC’s Corbett Auditorium under the direction of Glenn D. Price. This performance will also feature guest ensemble Xavier University Symphonic Winds, under the direction of CCM alumnus Matthew Westgate.
CCM’s Philharmonia Orchestra will present an exciting concert of new and grand symphonic works at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 26, in Corbett Auditorium.
The concert will feature a world premiere of CCM student composer Jennifer Jolley’s Le monde du silence and Anton Bruckner’s romantic work Symphony No. 8 in C Minor.
Congratulations to DMA composition student Jennifer Jolley, the winner of the 2011 CCM Orchestra Composition Competition! This annual competition involves several CCM composition students whose works are initially given readings by the Philharmonia. Then, a panel of judges chooses one composer to write a new orchestral work for the CCM Philharmonia for a performance during the following season.
Jennifer’s new piece will be conducted by Professor Mark Gibson and the other piece on the program (a year from April) will be the 8th symphony of Bruckner.
