The Lee University Wind Ensemble will kick off the new semester with its first concert of the season on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.

“The 51-member ensemble begins the year with 19 new members,” said Dr. David Holsinger, professor of music and Wind Ensemble conductor. “These new members have quickly adapted to the university level of musicianship, therefore promising a continued bright future for wind music here at Lee.”

The upcoming concert will feature music from several prominent composers, including one of the first works by American legend Vincent Persichetti, along with a selection in celebration of the 100th birthday of Vaclav Nelhybel.

Unique to this performance is a transcription of an 1875 orchestra work by Franz Liszt, along with a traditional John Philip Sousa encore and a march by renowned solo trombonist Arthur Pryor, the “Kansas Two-Step.”  Music by Dr. Holsinger, Manuel, Padilla, and Prokofiev will round out the evening.

The Lee University Wind Ensemble is committed to the highest level of performance of instrumental ensemble literature for winds and percussion. It is a non-traveling ensemble that performs for special concerts on the Lee University campus throughout the year.

The concert will be free, open to the public, and available for livestream viewing at https://livestream.com/leeu.

On this, the first day of a new month, I pause during my monthly trip to the garden as I mourn for my country.

By this I mean we were helpless to the virus – there was no way to stop it and therefore we must endure. Criminal rioting is altogether different. ... (click for more)
