The talented woodwind, brass and percussion musicians of the San Jose Wind Symphony recreate the busy sounds of spring for their latest buzz-worthy event. Ralph Vaughan Williams' overture to The Wasps is a highlight of the show as is Henry Fillmore's Circus Bee, but you'll also hear a symphonic take on The Beatles, as well as excerpts from Puccini's Madama Butterfly. Music and artistic director Dr. Edward C. Harris leads this acclaimed concert band, now in its 56th season. Learn More
The theme of the Wind Symphony’s season is “America the Beautiful.” Each concert explores a different aspect of America’s rich musical heritage. Their next concert, Chicago: My Kind of Town, gives concertgoers a sneak preview of the program that SJWS will perform later in the month at the 2009 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago.
The concert features two outstanding guest artists: French horn virtuoso Alicia Telford performs the Rondo from Richard Strauss’s Concerto No. 1, Op. 11; and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington leads his jazz quintet in his own composition, Open Evidence. SJWS also honors the late composer Roger Nixon, performing Nixon’s classic Centennial Fanfare-March.
