CCM’s Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble bring their fall concert series to a close with two performances this week.
CCM ushers in a new school year with a thrilling lineup of fall Winds Series events and a new Director of Wind Studies, Glenn D. Price. Price comes to CCM from the University of Calgary, where he conducted the University of Calgary Wind Ensemble, and is also an internationally acclaimed conductor, appearing with wind orchestras and festivals around the world.
Under Price’s direction, CCM’s Wind Symphony and Chamber Players will perform a vast array of stirring pieces of the Winds repertoire, including memorable jazz numbers, motifs encompassing the musical worlds of Britain and France and the unmistakable sounds of Stravinsky.
