A preview concert for the Symphonic Wind Ensemble's appearance at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, February 20.
Sunday's preview concert features UW-Whitewater faculty, Christian Ellenwood's original piece “if ever there is tomorrow”. Ellenwood reflects on the origin of the piece, “When Dr. Hayes approached me about a composition for the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, he expressed a desire for a work that was expressive and lyrical. At the time of his request, I had been reflecting upon many matters that, for me, are interconnected and emotionally important: my journey of self-discovery as an artist and teacher, the debt of gratitude that I owe to the persons who have loved me and helped me in my path through life, and my attempt to repay this debt by sharing what I have been given with my students, my family, and all whom I love.”
The concert will also feature the Kettle Moraine High School Wind Symphony.
