WIO Winds to Take Center Stage at the Spring 2020 Concert
About the May 2, 2020 Spring Concert
In addition to our celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday, we will be featuring our amazing woodwind and brass sections at the Spring Concert. Our principal trumpet, Bob Syverson and the iGen Symphony Strings will perform the Hovhanhess "Prayer of St. Gregory". Our talented French Horn section, comprised of brothers Geoff and Tim Trotier will perform the Michael Haydn "Concerto for Two French Horns". What a treat these wonderful brass compositions will be.
We are very excited to share the "Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments" by Richard Strauss with our audience. The Strauss features pairs of woodwinds and four french horns. This is an early composition and is one of the most treasured chamber music works for this combination of instruments.
The Intermezzo Ensemble will be joining the iGen Symphony Strings in the concert's finale "Jazz Legato" by Leroy Anderson.
You will not want to miss this special evening of exceptionally beautiful music performed by the WIO Intermezzo Ensemble and iGen Symphony.
