Chamber Winds and Wind Ensemble in Concert this Week

SHREVEPORT, LA — The Hurley School of Music will present two musical performances this week. Chamber Winds will be in concert Wednesday, November 30 and the Wind Ensemble will perform Thursday, December 1. The performances are at 7:30 p.m. in Anderson Auditorium of the Hurley School of Music building.


The Chamber Winds concert will feature Arthur Bird's "Serenade for Winds" and Gordon Jacob's "Old Wine in New Bottles." The Wind Ensemble will perform works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Vincent Persichetti, Clifton Williams, Felix Mendelssohn, and Percy Grainger. Both ensembles are under the direction of Dr. Thomas Stone.

The Wind Ensemble experience prepares instrumentalists and conductors for professional careers in performance and music education.

Chamber Winds is patterned after the Harmoniemusik of the Classical period, circa 1750-1825. The ensemble offers musicians the opportunity to perform high quality music in a one-to-a-part setting.
