WMU faculty, students perform side by side

Oct. 29, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's chamber ensemble, Western Winds, will give a free, public performance at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Dalton Center Recital Hall.

The concert will open with Henri Tomasi's "Fanfares Liturgiques" for brass and percussion. The performance also will feature "Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel," written by Johannes Brahms and transcribed for double-wind quintet by Daniel Braden. The University's graduate-level brass and wind quintets also will perform.

Led by Dr. Robert Spradling, WMU professor of music and director of bands, Western Winds provides graduate students with the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform side by side with their faculty mentors.
