Symphony Band, Wind Symphony to perform
Oct. 10

RELEASED: Oct. 5, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Symphony Band and Wind Symphony will perform at 2 p.m. Oct. 10 in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

The Symphony Band, under the direction of Dr. Phillip Ostrander, associate professor of music, will begin the concert with "Canzona" by Peter Mennin and "Scenes from the Louvre" by Norman Dello Joio. Next will be "Colorado Peaks" by Dana Wilson and "Hold This Boy and Listen" by Carter Pann. The Symphony Band will conclude its portion of the concert with "The Jig Is Up" by Daniel Kallman.

Under the direction of Dr. Peter Haberman, assistant professor of music, the Wind Symphony will take the stage and begin with "Ecstatic Waters" by Steven Bryant. Bryant has said that "Ecstatic Waters" is composed of five connected movements that hint at a narrative that touches upon navet, divination, fanaticism, anarchy, order and post-human possibilities. The overall title as well as "Ceremony of Innocence" and "Spiritus Mundi" are taken from poetry of Yeats, whose personal mythology and symbolism of spiraling chaos and looming apocalypse figured prominently in the genesis of the work. The Wind Symphony will conclude the concert with Symphony No. 4 by David Maslanka.

Tickets, available at the University Service Center, 715-836-3727 or 1-800-949-UWEC, are $6 for the public; $4 for those 62 and older, 17 and younger, and faculty and staff with a university ID; and $1.50 for students with a university ID.
