SWOSU Wind Ensemble Plans Friday Concert


The SWOSU Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. James South, will perform a free concert this Friday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Auditorium on the Weatherford campus. 

The public is invited, and Dr. South promises that there is something on the concert for everyone to enjoy.

Selections will include Apollo Unleashed (Finale to Symphony No. 2) by American composer Frank Ticheli; Lux Aurumque, a beautiful slow and introspective piece by American composer Eric Whitacre; a transcription of Edward Elgar’s popular orchestral work Enigma Variations; the short Prelude to Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La Traviata; and Felix Mendelssohn’s Overture for Winds

“This concert is a mix of music from several eras, classical to contemporary,” South said. “It will especially appeal to fans of orchestral music.  If you attend, you will be moved as well as entertained.”

The Wind Ensemble is the top concert band at SWOSU.  This is the final Wind Ensemble concert of the semester.
