Angelo State University’s Wind Ensemble will host its third concert of the season Tuesday, Feb. 26, at the San Angelo City Auditorium.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is open free to the public. The Wind Ensemble is a full orchestra, minus the string instruments, and is made up of the finest student woodwind, brass and percussion performers on the ASU campus. The ensemble is under the direction of Dr. Reginald Houze, assistant professor of music.
A special feature of the program will be solo pieces on flute and oboe by new ASU music faculty members Constance Kelley and Dr. Jeff Womack. Kelley will perform the expressive “Concertino for Flute, Opus 107” by C�cile Chaminade and Womack will perform the fiery “Storm Dance for Oboe and Wind Ensemble.”
The program will also include Dudley Buck’s “Festival Overture on the Star Spangled Banner” and music by Richard Strauss, Giacomo Puccini and several other composers.
Immediately following the concert, those in attendance will be invited to a complimentary “Meet the Artists” reception at the new River Valley Coffee and Caf� in downtown San Angelo.
