IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Fascinating Rhythms: University of Melbourne Wind Symphony and Concert Band

University of Melbourne Wind Symphony and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music Concert Band

Nicholas Williams - conductor

PLEASE NOTE - Doors open at 4PM

This driving and (at times) percussive showcase will feature the most talented wind, brass and percussion students in the University.

Highlights of the concert include David Gillingham’s Concertino for Four Percussion (featuring Wind Symphony members and soloists Huon Bourne Blue, Bridget Bourne, Leah Columbine, and Justin Zheng), John Barnes Chance’s epic work, Incantation and Dance, in addition to Darius Milhaud’s masterwork for the wind symphony, Suite Francaise.

Conducted by Associate Professor Nicholas Williams, this evening of artistry also includes the music of composers Ralph Vaughan Williams, Joan Tower, Yukiko Nishimura, Edward Gregson, Ericka Svanoe, as well as Australia’s own Catherine Likhuta.

You will be inspired by masterworks from the wind band repertoire and examples of the most contemporary and inspiring wind band compositions from around the world.
