Music students perform alongside their professors

Jan. 26, 2010

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University music faculty and students will perform side by side Wednesday, Feb. 10, in a chamber music concert featuring the Western Winds. The concert, which is open to the public free of charge, will begin at 8:15 p.m. in the Dalton Center Recital Hall.

In addition to works performed by the Graduate Wind and Brass quintets, the program includes Darius Milhaud's chamber classic "La Creation du Monde" and the newly commissioned "Inferno," by Daniel Bukvich.

Western Winds is a unique ensemble made up of faculty and graduate students from WMU's wind, brass and percussion studios. The arrangement allows music professors to share their talents with the community, and gives the school's most promising students the opportunity to perform at a professional level. Dr. Robert Spradling, music professor and director of bands at WMU, leads the ensemble.
