The Montana State University Wind Symphony will perform several elaborate concert works representing light and dark at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 28, in MSU's Reynolds Recital Hall.
The Wind Symphony will perform four works composed or arranged for wind band that portray musically light and dark, or good and evil. The concert will progress through a dramatic contrast of musical sound and style from the famous McBeth composition "Divergents?" to some of the more playful moments of Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana." Also featured are a number of special effects written for the percussion section including amplified wine glasses, twirled vacuum hoses, and a surround-sound effect with drums and organ.
Other pieces include "Voodoo," composed by MSU graduate Dan Buckvich, and "Angels in the Architecture," made famous by the 2012 Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps.
Tickets for the concert are $10 for general admission and $5 for students. Tickets will be available at the door.
