Come Out To The Columbia Festival Of Winds

Like you're doing anything better

Like you’re doing anything better

This Sunday (i.e., tomorrow), the Columbia University Wind Ensemble will host its 7th annual Festival of Winds, a full-day concert featuring performers from colleges and schools from around the region, held in our own Roone Arledge Auditorium. Proceeds from the festival will go to support music education in New York City, where budget tightening has led many schools to scale back or outright cancel their music education programs.

The Columbia Festival Band under Cornell’s James Spinazzola will kick off the performance at 1:00pm with Jager’s Espirit De Corps. Next will come the NYU Concert Band playing works by Gabrieli, Schuman, and Perischetti; the Princeton University Wind Ensemble playing works by Ticheli and Shostakovich; the Manhattan Wind Ensemble works by Reed, Giroux, and Marquez; the ISO Symphonic Band works by Korsakov, Barber, and Ticheli; and the Columbia University Wind Ensemble works by Yagisawa and Maslanka.

The festival will end around 4:25 with a performance by all of the groups combined, of Percy Grainger’s Irish Tune from County Derry. A reception will follow for VIP ticket-holders.
