For this unique concert, the San Jose Wind Symphony's own musician-members have chosen the works to be played. Among the favorites picked by the players are Bach's Fugue à la Gigue and Liszt's Les Preludes. The lively program, entitled The Musician's World, will also find the SJWS sharing the stage with a guest ensemble -- the inspired, virtuosic Quadre Horn Quartet performing Schumann's Konzertstück. These funny and highly entertaining French horn masters have won awards and played concerts across the country. 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. The Beat Goes On takes concertgoers on a rhythmic journey through the American musical landscape, from the gospel-inspired American Hymnsong Suite by Dawyne Milburn to the Civil War battlefields of Morton Gould’s American Salute.
Our guest artist for the afternoon is Galen Lemmon, principal percussionist with Symphony Silicon Valley. Mr. Lemmon will perform Gary Ziek’s Concerto for Percussion Solo and Wind Ensemble, showcasing his formidable talents on marimba, vibraphone, bells and a battery of drums and tom-toms.
