A Joint Concert with the University of Minnesota Wind Ensemble

Dr. Emily Threinen, guest conductor

Dr. Lance Sample, guest conductor

The Henry David Thoreau quote invites listeners on a musical journey of the imagination. The repertoire presented is largely connected to literary and illustrative works, exploring the miscellany of emotions through scenes, characters, events, and time. Chiefly under the baton of guest conductor Dr. Emily Threinen, Director of Bands at the University of Minnesota, two exciting ensembles will share the stage for this performance. MSW will open with Shostakovich’s Festive Overture and close with Ticheli’s Angels in the Architecture, and also include compositions by Jolley, Binney, and Rheinberger. UMWE will perform compositions by Tommasini and Puckett before bringing the house down with Lavender’s transcription of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. It’s going to be amazing!
