Tributes, UCLA Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band Spring Concert

UCLA Wind Ensemble
classical

For their final concert of the academic year, the UCLA Symphonic Band and UCLA Wind Ensemble present a concert of all-American music, celebrating connections between composers and recognizing two leaders in the field as they retire from professorial positions.

The UCLA Symphonic Band opens with Michael Markowski’s Shadow Rituals, winner of the first Frank Ticheli Composition Contest in 2006. The group also plays Kelijah Dunton’s Color in the Grey, Viet Cuong’s Diamond Tide, Scott McAllister’s Zing!, and John Mackey’s Strange Humors.

The second half of the concert begins with the UCLA Wind Ensemble playing Frank Ticheli’s Pacific Fanfare to honor Ticheli, who retires this spring as Professor of Composition at the University of Southern California. O Magnum Mysterium follows, written by Ticheli’s former USC colleague Morten Lauridsen and transcribed by Ticheli’s former band conductor at the University of Michigan, H. Robert Reynolds. Viet Cuong is represented again on the program with Heart on Fire, followed by Ingrid Stölzel’s Musical Ignota. The program ends with the Symphony No. 1 of Timothy Mahr, who retires this spring as Professor of Music and Conductor of the St. Olaf Band.

 

This performance is made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2022-2023 Dobrow Series.

Seating is first come, first served. We recommend early arrival for our concerts.
