College of Arts and Humanities | School of Music | The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center Saturday, October 9, 2021 8:00 pm-10:00 pm The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Dekelboum Concert Hall or Livestream on Vimeo

UMD Wind Orchestra
Michael Votta, Jr., conductor
Alexander Scott, graduate conductor

Join us in-person at The Clarice or watch the livestream from the comfort of your home.

This evening of contemplative works will explore the variety of ways that outward impressions can influence inward feelings. First, experience the English seaside in Ruth Gipps’ Seascape. Then, absorb Arnold Schoenberg's masterful Chamber Symphony Op. 9—the first work to distill a symphony into one movement. Don’t miss the performance of Kung Fu by award-winning Chinese composer Shuying Li. Commissioned by the UMD Wind Orchestra, Li captures the spirit of kung fu in three movements. Finally, Jules Strens' Danse Funambulesque (Tightrope Dance) is literally a "high-wire" act, depicting his impressions of seeing aerialists in action—leaping, flying and twirling in death-defying stunts.
