“Ancient Airs and Dances”: UNCSA Ensembles in Concert - Livestream

Ancient Airs and Dances

Emerging Artist Series

Renaissance and Baroque music from France, Italy and Germany is remastered for varied ensembles in this energetic concert program. Italian influences are heard in Respighi's “Ancient Airs and Dances” performed by the Amadeus Players conducted by Karen Ní Bhroin.

Robert Spittal's contemporary reflection on 16th-century French songs provides a lively, heartfelt and capricious suite as performed by the Chamber Winds conducted by Mark A. Norman. The concert concludes with the premiere of the Bergstone Brass, a brass ensemble named in memory of the School of Music’s founding faculty-artist in horn, Fredrick Bergstone. They will perform Brian Balmages' provokingly powerful brass and percussion choir work "Ite missa est" featuring Martin Luther's "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott" (“A Mighty Fortress is our God”).
