The Wind Ensemble performed at four events this Commencement 2010.  On Saturday, we began the day with a sound check in Schoellkopf stadium, followed by the Convocation ceremony, then our Senior Week Concert in the Arts Quad, then the PhD ceremony in Barton Hall. Long day!  On Sunday, we performed for Commencement ceremonies, one of our favorite events of the year. Highlights of the weekend…4 standing ovations during our Senior Week Concert…Nancy Pelosi coming over and thanking the ensemble during Convocation…”The Wiz” played 4 times; each time more smokin’ then the last…hearing President Skorton congratulate CU Winds on our service projects in Philadelphia and Costa Rica during his Commencement speech …watching our seniors stand in the ensemble with pride…Soolean’s sliver. CU Winds wishes each of the graduating seniors a fond farewell. We will miss you…Congratulations all!!!
