The Minnesota Symphonic Winds returns to this wonderful sanctuary to present great works that have stood the test of time as well as new works that represent the musical trends of today.  The Toccata Marziale of Vaughan Williams, Elgar’s Nimrod from Enigma Variations, and the monumental Lincolnshire Posy of Grainger will be counterbalanced by Mahr’s They Sing of Love and David Maslanka’s Give Us This Day. Additionally, a chamber ensemble will present Richard Strauss’ Serenade for Winds, Op. 7.

 
From the Director

“Making fine music come alive is an engaging and worthwhile challenge, as well as a rejuvenating source of joy and gratification that deepens with age and experience. The Minnesota Symphonic Winds takes this all quite seriously, while managing to have a lot of fun in the process!”

— Dr. Timothy Mahr, Conductor
