Music at Butler: Butler University Wind Ensemble
The Butler University Symphonic Wind Ensemble presents their first concert of the 2022-23 season entitled We Sing on October 2, 2022 at 3:00 pm in the Schrott Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Butler University.
The program celebrates the flexibility of the Wind Ensemble through the use of varied forces on each piece. We open the concert program with the Indiana premiere of Parhelion by Roshanne Etezady. The work is a brilliant concert opener commissioned in honor of Professor Gary Hill, Director of Bands Emeritus at Arizona State University, in a consortium organized by Trae Blanco, Director of Bands at Butler University.
We feature one of our outstanding graduate students in the School of Music, Sabin Martinez, as the alto saxophone soloist in Andre Waignein’s work Rhapsody for Alto Saxophone. Sabin is a winner of the 2022 School of Music Concerto Competition.
Additional works on the program include And Sings the Tune Without the Words, by Minnesota-based composer Aaron Perrine, and we close the concert with Carl Orff’s masterwork, Carmina Burana, transcribed for band by John Krance.
This performance is free and open to the public, no ticket is required.
Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn by all patrons in the venue.
