RELEASED: March 7, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Wind Symphony and Symphony Band will present a joint concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 13, in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

Symphony Band will perform first, directed by Phillip Ostrander, assistant professor of music and theatre arts. The ensemble will begin with "La Mourisque" by Tylman Susato, followed by John Gibson's "Pegasus Fanfare." Verle Ormsby, lecturer of music and theatre arts, will be featured on horn in "The Call and Awakening" from "The Glass-Bead Game" by James A. Beckel Jr., a composition loosely based on a novel of the same title by Hermann Hesse. The Symphony Band will close its portion of the concert with "A Slavic Farewell" by Vasilij Agapkin.

Wind Symphony, directed by Richard Mark Heidel, assistant professor of music and theatre arts, will open the second half of the concert with Symphony No. 3: "Slavyanskaya" by Boris Kozhevnikov and "Armenian Dances," Part I by Alfred Reed. Concertino, Op. 47 will follow, featuring Richard Fletcher, professor of music, on clarinet and Kristine Fletcher, senior lecturer of music, on bassoon. A performance of "The Battle of Shiloh" by C.L. Barnhouse will conclude the concert.

The two groups will just have returned from a March 9-11 joint tour of the Green Bay area where the ensembles will share their music with high school students at Appleton, West De Pere, Denmark, Bay Port, Chippewa Falls and Mosinee High Schools.

Tickets, available at the Service Center, are $5 for the public; $4 for those 62 and older, 17 and younger and UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff; and $1.50 for UW-Eau Claire students.
