The UC San Diego Wind Ensemble will present its spring term concert under the direction of William Gilmer. The theme of the concert is Mid-Century Modern, a term often used to represent the architectural and interior design styles during the post-World War II period.
The mid-20th century offered the groundbreaking establishment of the Eastman Wind Ensemble and brought a sense of legitimacy to the wind band in the world of composition. Many of the era's most modern and forward-thinking composers wrote original compositions for wind and percussion instruments. For their performance, the UC San Diego Wind Ensemble will present several masterpieces from the 1950s, including Chester Overture by William Schumann, Divertimento for Band by Vincent Persichetti, La Fiesta Mexicana by H. Owen Reed, Canzona by Peter Mennin and selections from Candide by Leonard Bernstein. The ensemble will also perform a medley of popular Frank Sinatra songs.
