Meadows Wind Ensemble: Three-Ring Circus

April 26 @ 7:30 pm

$8 – $14

Three-Ring Circus is, as one might expect, a program that is all about 3s! The program will feature three pieces for metal instruments: Ring, Flourish, Blaze by Augusta Read Thomas,Canzon septimi toni à 12 (for three choirs) by Giovanni Gabrieli, and a new fanfare for brass instruments by Meadows student Quinn Mason. Also featured will be three quasi-jazz works:Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs by Leonard Bernstein, Rhapsody in Blue (original “jazz band” version) by George Gershwin, and Blue Shades by Meadows alumnus Frank Ticheli. Two more “3s” round out the program: Stravinsky’s Three pieces for clarinet solo and two dancers, and Passages (in three movements) by Stephen Jones, written on commission for the MWE. The only thing missing is a waltz in three-quarter time – we’ll work on that! For more information call 214.768.2787.
