Band and Orchestra Host Spring Concert

On Wednesday, May 2, Chamber Ensemble and Wind Ensemble will be performing their final concert of the year. The concert is will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Eagle Theatre.

Chamber Ensemble will play a variety of pieces, from Aaron Copland’s “Quiet City”, which will feature Instrumental Music Department director Ted Ferrucci playing the English horn, to Gustav Mahler’s “Adagietto.”

Following performances by the Chamber and Wind ensembles, the two groups will come together to play Marquez’ “Danzon No. 2,” a Mexican contemporary classical music piece.

After the performances, Ferrucci will conduct a ceremony recognizing seniors in the band and orchestra by reading short biographies about each graduating senior.

“I’m really looking forward to the concert because we’ll be playing a symphony with the orchestra,” band member freshman Louis Hinnant said. “It’ll be great to play with them again.”
