Wind Symphony Concert

October 28, 2021 from 7:00 p.m.

The Cedarville University Wind Symphony will present their first concert of the year on Thursday, October 28th at 7pm in the Jeremiah Chapel of the Dixon Ministry Center. The concert will open with Michael Daugherty's "Raise the Roof" for solo timpani and band. Senior percussion performance major, Noah Ramirez, will be the featured soloist on this dramatic and exciting work. Senior music education major Soraya Peront will conduct the band in David Dzubay's "Nocturne," a beautiful piece of music featuring crystalline timbres and shifting colors. "Danzon No. 2" by Mexican composer Arturo Márquez will feature a number of the soloists and sections of the wind symphony in a transcription of this popular orchestral work. Prof. Charles Pagnard, principal trumpet of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and trumpet instructor at Cedarville for over 40 years, will be featured on the rousing work "Concertpiece," by James Curnow. The concert will conclude with one of the more rousing works written for winds in recent years, "Come Sunday," by African-American composer Omar Thomas. The work is a "two movement tribute to the Hammond organ's central role in black worship services." Thomas utilizes the sounds and instruments of the modern wind ensemble in exciting and unique ways.

This concert will feature great soloists, exciting music, and energetic performances from around the band. You will not want to miss this concert. This concert is free and open to the public.
