VSU Wind Ensemble Performs Thursday Night




VALDOSTA — The Valdosta State University Wind Ensemble performs live in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2, in Whitehead Auditorium. Admission is free of charge and open to the public.

The Wind Ensemble is the premiere wind band at VSU and is conducted by Dr. Benjamin Harper, director of bands and assistant professor of music. The 47-member group performs a diverse repertoire of the highest caliber and, as a professional training ensemble, focuses on the development of independent musicianship and leadership skills in a large group setting.

Harper said the Wind Ensemble will perform Armenian Dances, Part I, by Alfred Reed, a standard work by a composer who contributed in great quantity to the band repertoire; O Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen, originally written for choir and transcribed for brass choir, conducted by graduate student conductor Thetheus White; and Concerto Scion by Kevin Walczyk, featuring Peter Geldrich, associate professor of clarinet at VSU.

Whitehead Auditorium is located on the first floor of the VSU Fine Arts Building, at the intersection of Brookwood Drive and Oak Street.

Please contact Dr. Benjamin Harper at (229) 249-4965 or to learn more.
