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.
