Faculty Oboe Artist Jaren Atherholt performs Frank Ticheli’s "Serenade for Kristin" evoking emotive ranges from the poignant
to joy and, in the end, love. Featuring a solo saxophone quartet, Rob Smith titled
his "Catalytic Concerto" as a pun in how he intertwines a set of polarizing harmonies
and a contrasting scale much in the way a catalytic converter alters car emissions
with an enzyme so they are less harmful to the environment.
Invoking images from the theater, the Chamber Winds perform Kurt Weill’s Suite from
"Three Penny Opera" featuring guest conductor, Timothy Heath. The Wind Ensemble performs
works inspired from the texts of St. Francis of Assisi ("Canticle of the Creatures"
– James Curnow) and the words of Rainer Maria Rilke ("Pathways" – Danielle Fisher).
The concert concludes with Arturo Marquez’ popular "Danzon #2."
